The SAT, or Scholastic Aptitude Test, is widely used for college admissions in the United States. If you are considering doing an undergraduate study in the US, you are most likely aware that this will give you an advantage in your application. While submitting a SAT score is no longer compulsory for some colleges, having a high SAT score can increase your chances of being accepted into your desired university.
(Since 1999, we’ve been helping students average scores in the top 4% range.)

Cost of Registering for the SAT in Singapore
The registration fee for the SAT is US$55 at the time of this writing. Additionally, the cost of registering in Singapore will also include a “Non-U.S. Regional Fee” of US$53. A late registration fee can also be charged, but Singapore’s Test Centers usually fill-up well in advance of the test date, so take care to register early to secure your seat! If you do secure a seat through the Waitlist you will be charged a further Waitlist Fee.
Changing Your Registration Date
If you need to, it is possible to change your SAT registration to a new Centre or Date at an additional fee, subject to availability. You can also pay the Change Fee to switch from the regular SAT to the SAT Subject Tests or vice versa, for example, if you booked a “back-up” SAT date but already secured your desired result.
Preparing for Your SAT
How much time you’ll need to prepare for the test depends on how much time you have and how ready you are to attempt its questions. You may try to search for practice questions online. The SAT consists of 2 sections: Reading and Writing, and Math. In the Math component, there will be one section that allows you to use a calculator for one section, while another does not.
The key to getting top scores is speed and accuracy. This means that you will have to quickly understand what the questions are asking for and determine the correct answer. This takes hours of practice, with some students spending more time preparing for one section over the other. Many students who come to us tend to require more practice in the Reading and Writing section.
To find out how much preparation you will need to ace the test, a diagnostic test can help you. This may be a condensed version of the actual test and gives you an idea of the test format and requirements.
