The SAT I is designed to measure a secondary school student's reasoning skills. It is a requirement for applicants to some, but not all, U.S. and international universities. The SAT I is made up of multiple-choice questions that measure mathematical and verbal reasoning abilities.
AMIDEAST maintains a supply of registration bulletins and Taking the SAT I bulletins. If you are not in a country where AMIDEAST has an office, please visit your high school guidance counselor or local advising office to obtain a bulletin.
The SAT I is offered several times a year with registration deadlines approximately two months before the test date. The SAT I is administered on those dates in a paper-based format.
Students who wish to take the test in a country where AMIDEAST has an office may register for the SAT I at most AMIDEAST offices. Other candidates should refer to the SAT bulletin to register by fax or mail. They may also register on-line using a credit card.
It is important for you to be familiar with the kinds of questions asked on the SAT I. There are several ways to prepare.
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.
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.
If you need score reports to be sent to additional institutions, please complete the form in the SAT registration bulletin and return it with payment to the College Board. If paying by credit card, you may also contact the College Board on-line or by telephone as detailed in the registration bulletin.
Questions about any missing score reports (scores not received after 8 weeks or longer) should be directed to the Educational Testing Service, which issues the SAT score reports. An e-mail sent to the SAT customer service address firstname.lastname@example.org usually will receive a response in five to seven days. Score report problems are best avoided by careful preparation of the registration form: writing name and mailing address clearly and following payment procedures outlined.
