SAT 2018 APPLICATION & REGISTRATION
SAT is conducted 7 times in a year in the U.S. and 5 times a year in most countries outside the U.S. SAT Registration is open throughout the year. Interested candidates, however, are required to book the upcoming test date of their choice before the deadline of that particular SAT date.
SAT registration includes four stages – creating a student’s profile; filling the application form; booking the test date and test center; paying the necessary charges. There are no defined eligibility criteria to sit for SAT. Students below 12 years of age, however, can only register by mail.
