The SAT and SAT Subject Tests are held in India 6 times a year, in the months of January, May, June, October, November and December. The test is usually held on the first Saturday of the month, but there can be exceptions. Test dates are released well in advance by the College Board, and can be viewed on the website: http://sat.collegeboard.org.
Registration for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests takes place online on the College Board website (http://sat.collegeboard.org/register). The deadline to register is roughly 4 weeks before a test date, but students are encouraged to complete their registration well in advance, to ensure that they get a seat at a test center of their choice. There are currently more than 45 test centers spread across more than 20 cities in India. The complete list of centers can be viewed by students when they are registering online.
The SAT costs Indian students $94.50 (there could be additional costs for extra services chosen by students). The Subject Tests cost a bit lesser. Students can take up to three Subject Tests on one testing date. However, students cannot take the SAT and the SAT Subject Test on the same day.
Students in India are currently not permitted to take the tests without a valid passport. Before registering, students should ensure they will have a valid passport on the day of testing. Expired passports, or letters from the Passport Office stating the Passport is in process of being issued will not be acceptable. Only those students carrying a valid passport to the test center will be allowed to take the test.
Students should ensure they carry everything they’ll need on the test day, for a smooth testing experience. They can review the list of items to carry, or not to carry, on http://sat.collegeboard.org/register/sat-test-day-checklist.
