On Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, SAT is defined as a standardized test generally and widely used for college admissions in the United States. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times, being originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test, then the SAT Reasoning Test, and now simply the SAT.
Likewise, the SAT test in Thailand is widely used among international colleges and international programs in universities such as Chulalongkorn University, Thammasat University, Mahidol University, and Kasetsart University. The SAT score plays an essential role in the application and admission process of these leading universities’ international programs. Thai students who determine to pursue their education in international programs apply to take this exam.
There are two types of SAT tests :
1. SAT I <<<< widely taken by Thai high school students
2. SAT II or SAT Subject Test – It offers you an additional opportunity to show colleges what you know and what you can do. The subjects tested are, for example, World History, French, Spanish, Biology/EM, Chemistry, and Literature.
SAT I (The SAT) is a globally recognized university admission test that lets you show universities what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing, and math–subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Almost all international programs of Thai universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. But SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions.
