What is the SAT ?                                                               

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught everyday in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. (http://sat.collegeboard.org/home)

Where and when can I take the SAT?

The SAT is offered several times a year with registration deadlines approximately two months before the test date. The SAT is administered on those dates in a paper-based format.

How do I prepare for the SAT?

It is important for you to be familiar with the kinds of questions asked on the SAT. There are several ways to prepare.

  • Visit the SAT Web site for sample questions and tips
  • Do the questions and sample test in the free Taking the SAT I bulletin
  • Purchase SAT preparation materials from AMIDEAST
  • Take a test preparation class at AMIDEAST

What do I do on the day of the test?

Arrive at the test site 30 minutes before the assigned test time. Check-in procedures take time. If you arrive late, you may not be admitted to the test, and you will forfeit your test fees. Bring photobearing identification, as described in the SAT registration bulletin in addition to your admission ticket.  Information on your admission ticket must exactly match the information on your identification document (name, date of birth, gender), otherwise you won’t be allowed to take the test.

In case you chose to receive an examinee score report form at the time you registered for the test,  your SAT examinee score reports will be received at AMIDEAST office around 45 days after the test date.

What about my scores?

Your official scores will be mailed from the United States about three weeks after the test. Please allow time for them to arrive by international mail.

ETS regulations require test takers to contact the ETS Customer Service Center directly about missing scores.
