Online, mail, and phone registration resources for the SAT

Students must register in advance for the SAT to ensure that the correct materials are waiting for them at the test center. With registration, each student receives:
·                                 An assigned test center seat
·                                 An Admission Ticket-by Web, email, or postal mail
·                                 Up to four score reports sent to colleges and scholarship services

Registration is easy. Help your students choose the best registration method:

·                                 Online registration is the fastest, most accurate method. It gives immediate confirmation of the test center seat and access to an online Admission Ticket for corrections and reprinting.

·                                 Mail registration is sometimes required. Students who provide an email address on the form will receive tickets by email only. Paper registrants who do not provide an email address or who indicate on the form that they want to receive a paper ticket as well will continue to receive an Admission Ticket in the mail.

·                                 Phone registration is offered for retaking the test. A fee applies. Only students who have a previous registration in the system can register by phone.

Late Registration Deadlines

The SAT Program has standardized the length of time available for late registration across all test dates to be at least 14 days.

Standby testing for the SAT®

Students who miss the late registration deadline may be able to take the SAT® as a standby. The SAT Program expects test centers to offer standby testing if they have enough staff members, materials, and space for it. Even though the student has not registered ahead of time, the student can test after filling out a Registration Form and handing it in with payment on test day.

Students can get standby Registration Forms from our test center administrator or at American Council (you can find more information on their web-site:http://www.americancouncils.org.ua/).

Standby restrictions
The following restrictions apply to testing as a standby:
·                                 Standby testing cannot be reserved ahead of time, and there is no guarantee that it will be offered on test day.
·                                 Fee waivers can't be used for standby testing.
·                                 Standby testing is not offered to adult test-takers (21 years or more as of test day).

This form must include a recognizable photo, and the school or notary seal must overlap the photo. If prepared by the school, the form should be printed on school letterhead. A student should sign the ID form in the presence of a counselor or principal or notary public. The student will also be asked to sign the ID form again at the test center. This form must be dated and is good for only one year.

Unacceptable identification
If a student does not bring acceptable ID to the test center, that student will not bepermitted to test. Examples of unacceptable identification include:
·                                 Social security card

·                                 Yearbook

·                                 Written physical description of the student (without photo), even if written on school stationery and signed by a counselor or principal

Admittance to the test center does not mean that the identification presented is valid or that scores are reported. All reported cases of questionable identification are subject to review and appropriate action.

Home-schooled students

Home-schooled students who do not have acceptable photo ID should download and print the form, and take it to their authorized Homeschool Association or a notary public to have it signed and sealed.

SAT is a prerequisite Reasoning Test conducted for the admissions of undergraduate programs in United States. It is a 3 hour test that determines the proficiency of the students in verbal, mathematical and reasoning skills that are required to evaluate the skills needed to complete the academic successfully. The test is administered several times a year. Many universities also require SAT-II test score along with the SAT-I score for admission. Every year around 2 million students take SAT. Many colleges and universities finds SAT as a more credible test for predicting the student's competence. The test scores are valid up to 5 years of the test date.

Test Modules in SAT
Typically, SAT reasoning test are categorized into three major sections, Critical Reading, Writing and Mathematics, with a total of 10 sub-sections including a dummy section. These sections are discussed below:

Critical Reading

It includes two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section with 48 reading comprehension questions and 19 sentence completion questions. The scores are scaled on a 200-800 point scale with the total time limit of 70 minutes. This module consists of the following subsections:

• 

 

Sentence Completion: It measures the vocabulary of the applicants and understanding the sentence structure i.e., how the different parts of a sentence fit logically together. Here each sentence has one or two blank space which has to be filled correctly with the given multiple choices

• 

 

Passage-based Reading: This section comprises of two types of passage reading, Vocabulary in Context and Literal Comprehension. It measures the reading abilities of the students and thinking carefully about different passages ranging from 100 to 850 words approximately. These passages will be extracted from a variety of fields like, humanities, social studies, natural sciences, and literary fiction

Writing Section
The writing section of SAT is based on the old SAT-II subject test in writing. The total time limit of writing section is 60 minutes. It includes multiple choice questions and a brief essay. The essay score accounts to be around 30% of the writing score and the multiple choice component accounts to be around 70%.
The multiple choice questions include, Error Identification, Sentence Improvement questions that tests for grammar knowledge and Paragraph Improvement questions that test for student's understanding of logical organization of ideas.
The essay section is administered as the first part of the test, which has 25 minutes of time limit. They have to be written in response to the specified prompt, which are typically philosophical and are designed to be accessible to students despite of their educational and social backgrounds.

Mathematics Section
This section is also known as Quantitative Section determines important skills like, estimation and number sense using multiple choice questions and student response questions. Mathematics section includes topics like, exponential growth, absolute value, and functional notation. It consisting of three scored sections:

• 

 

A 25 minutes section — It contains 20 multiple choice (problem solving) questions to be completed in 25 minutes

• 

 

Another 25-minute section — It contains 8 multiple choice (problem solving) questions and 10 grid-in questions, within the time limit of 25 minutes

• 

 

A shorter section of 16 multiple choice (problem solving) questions to be completed in 20 minutes of time

In addition there will be a dummy section formally called as Variable or Equation section with the time limitation of 20 minutes. However this section does not count towards the individual score and they cannot be recognized in the test so as to not skipping those questions. They are only used for the future edition of SAT

The three parts of SAT are scored separately as reading score, a writing score, and a math score that range from 200 to 800 each. The average score of each section will be about 500. This average score is acceptable by almost all the colleges and universities. Yet few top colleges/universities expect for above average SAT scores of above 2100, which would puts in the 90 percentile.

A good SAT score will certainly increase your chances of secure admission in better colleges/universities. Your SAT subject score is measured on a scale of 200 to 800. Usually a SAT score of about 500 in every section(Mathematics, Writing and Critical Reading) is considered as a good score to get admission in good colleges/universities.

What are the SAT Subject Tests?

SAT Subject Tests are the only national admission tests that measure students' knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, and their ability to apply that knowledge. They are closely linked to the high school curriculum and have a proven track record of providing colleges with a highly reliable, objective assessment of student readiness for college-level work. The SAT Subject Tests give students an additional opportunity to distinguish themselves and showcase their skills in a particular subject area.

He    lping colleges objectively assess student knowledge and skills

A student's high school grades and course selection are excellent indicators of how well that student is going to do in college. But course content and grading standards vary widely among high schools, making it difficult for colleges to compare the academic records of their applicants. How can colleges effectively and objectively assess a student's mastery of specific content areas?

Educators trust the SAT Subject Tests as a useful part of the college application process because they are:

·                                 Highly reliable and valid

·                                 A recognized, accurate measure of college readiness and subject-area knowledge

·                                 A proven method for placing and advising students based on their individual academic preparation

·                                 A way for students to show their thorough knowledge of a certain subject, as well as their academic interest and determination to succeed

Each year, nearly 500,000 students take SAT Subject Tests to demonstrate their mastery of particular subjects. Colleges across the USA use the tests as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student's mastery of specific content areas.

 

What are the SAT Subject Tests and why are they important?

SAT Subject Tests are one hour tests that focus on specific academic subjects. Many selective schools require you take at least one if not more SAT Subject Tests. Check with the admissions department of your top schools to learn more about their requirements. The best part about the Subject Tests is that in many cases you get to choose which ones you'll take, so you should pick the ones where you're strongest.

What specifically do the SAT Subject Tests test?

It depends on the test. There are 5 content areas-Math, History Literature, Science, and Languages. There are multiple tests in every content area except Literature. Find out more on the specifics of each area.

Quick Facts.

Duration is one hour per test. Frequency varies by test. Sections varies by test. Cost varies by test. Max score is 800. Avg. score varies by test.

How are the SAT Subject Tests scored?

Each Subject Test is scored on a scale of 200-800.

How do I register?

Similar to the SAT, you can register for SAT subject tests registration deadlines fall approximately 5 weeks before each test date. To register by mail, fill out the registration form in the College Board's Bulletin for the SAT Program. You can get a free copy of this publication from your school's guidance counselor.
