The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a standardized test of participants’ language and math skills that assesses their level of readiness to enter university. The SAT is administered by the College Board .

Purpose of taking the SAT

The SAT and American College Testing (ACT) are two important tests for admission to prestigious US universities from the past to the present. Students wishing to study at international universities in Europe, the United States, as well as in Turkey at the undergraduate level in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and engineering must be able to obtain the required score on this test.

The SAT test is not held in Iran, so if you are applying to take this test, you should go to the test locations in Turkey, Azerbaijan, and UAE. It makes more sense for Iranian candidates to take the test in neighboring countries such as Turkey and Azerbaijan.

The SAT General exam

The SAT General exam is held 5 to 6 times a year in different countries. The SAT General test is easier than the SAT Subject test.

Most Turkish universities use this test as a criterion for admission to all undergraduate courses. The SAT General test consists of two parts: computational and English (reading and comprehension – writing and language – essay writing (optional)).
