Frequently Asked Questions
Can I register for the SAT in May even if it's only November?
Yes you can! As long as there is a register link on the College Board website under the date, you can register to take the SAT on that date.
Where can I take the SAT in Dubai?
Too many places to mention. Many schools in Dubai offer the SAT, so you can search on the College Board website for the one closest to you with available seats.
How many times can I take the SAT?
As many as you want. You have "Score Choice," which means can send 1 or all your SAT scores to your chosen universities. They will only see the scores you send them, so they won't know how many times you took the SAT. More than twice is kind of a waste of money though...
Do I need to take the SAT to apply to Canadian universities?
It depends on the university and the curriculum in which you are studying. In general, if you ware studying in an American curriculum school, you need to take the SAT. For example, McGill University requires an SAT score of 1150 minimum and 2 SAT Subject Test (like math and physics). Plan accordingly!
