PASSING SAT

International students wanting to avail scholarship programmes and admissions in US universities and colleges have to go through the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) conducted by the College Board internationally. SAT is one of the qualifying examinations required by colleges, universities and scholarship programmes to ascertain how well prepared a student is to do college-level work. The College Board SAT programme consists of  SAT-I (Reasoning Test) and SAT-II (Subject Test). Before taking the tests, it would be advisable to find out if the colleges you are interested in require SAT-I or SAT-II.
