College and Secondary School Admission Test Schedule 2023-2024

AISL is a registered test center for SAT (Standardized Achievement Test) and ACT (American College Test). The results of one of these tests are sometimes required by colleges and universities in the US and some other countries. Check college websites for current information since many have changed their policies since the pandemic.

The PSAT (Preliminary Standardized Achievement Test) is taken by students in Grade 11 in October, and Grade 10 students may also choose to take this test. The PSAT test provides information about achievement and helps students to prepare for the SAT. In addition, US citizens taking the PSAT in their 11th-grade year are eligible for consideration for the National Merit Scholarship competition (NMSQT).

Younger students may wish to take the PSAT 8/9 or PSAT 10. Both tests are offered at AISL.

AISL is also registered to administer Assessment Tests for university applications in the UK and some other countries. For a full list of tests please follow this link.

For students transferring to an American secondary school, AISL can administer the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) at the Middle and Upper Levels.
