SAT & ACT Registration Information

What is a SAT or ACT?

Regular SAT Test
The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a widely-used admission test. Many colleges accept either the SAT or ACT (American College Testing), but some require one or the other.

The SAT measures students’ verbal reasoning, critical reading, and math problem-solving skills. It tells colleges how well students use the skills and knowledge they’ve learned so far, both in and out of school.

Overseas students looking to go to a 4-year US College are normally required to take a SAT.

As explained above, it is a multi-choice English & Math examination. Students are normally required to score 940 marks out of a possible 1600.

Taking Tests More than Once
You may take the SAT or the ACT more than one time. If you take either test more than once, you may use your best sub score from different tests to meet the minimum test-score requirements.
Here is an example:
Math Verbal/Critical Reading Total Score
SAT (10/07) 350 470 = 820
SAT (12/07) 420 440 = 860
Scores used 420 470 = 890
Your test score will continue to be calculated using the math and verbal/critical reading subsections of the SAT and the math, Science, English and reading subsections of the ACT. The writing component of the ACT or SAT will not be used to determine your qualifier status.

IMPORTANT CHANGE:
All SAT and ACT test scores must be reported to the NCAA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency. Test scores will not be accepted if reported on a high school transcript.
