SAT is a globally recognised test that evaluates a candidate’s knowledge in reading, writing and math. Usually taken by junior and senior high school students, SAT assesses how well the test takers analyse and solve problems and use skills they learned in school or in college. Since SAT is of two types, both the SAT Test Patterns follow different formats to evaluate a candidate’s knowledge. Apart from this, the Test syllabus has been set keeping in mind the requirements of the two formats.

SAT is offered seven times each year in the US and six times internationally. Candidates can sit for the test in October, November, December, January, May and June. Candidates can register for the test on any of the mentioned months. However, the confirmation of seats depends on the availability as on that test date at the designated test centre.

There are no eligibility criteria for SAT and it is usually taken by students who are within the age limit of 17 to 18 years.

The main and the biggest difference is that General SAT tests for the general Knowledge and critical reasoning while SAT subject test your knowledge in specific areas say: biology, math etc.

Also, General SAT is around 3 hours paper whereas, SAT subject is a 1 hour paper. General SAT is offered for around 7 times a year and SAT Subject is offered for like 6 times a year that too, depending on the subject (date wise).

There are two test for SAT Biology- Biology (E) and Biology (M), you cannot take both of them on the same date. (E) stands for Ecological and (M) for Molecular. The syllabus topics are as follows:

Basically there is no eligibility criteria specifically for SAT 2020. Generally candidates can opt for the exam in their junior or senior years of high school (Indian Grades 11th or 12th), to be precise, aspirants are roughly between 17 or 18 years of age.

So, you will be eligible for SAT 2020.

Good Luck

Can a student from India take the SAT exam if he/she is homeschooled?

Aishwarya Bp 28th Jan, 2020


Yes you can take SAT exam even if he/she is home schooled.

You have to register online,Once you're done registering you will get an admission ticket.

You can ask for a fee waiver if you're home schooled from a counselor at the local public high school. one must provide eligibility proof like tax records, public assistance records, or record of enrollment in an aid program  to the conselor.

Hope it helps
