SAT and PSAT/NMSQT at UNIS Hanoi
The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a globally recognized college/university admission test that is used to assist colleges/universities in the application process. It is used as a part of the application for universities in the US, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and if a student is not a full IB Diploma candidate, it may be required in other countries as well.
It is important to note that SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions.
The SAT measures critical reading and mathematics:
- The critical reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions
- The mathematics section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability.
At UNIS Hanoi many of our students will sit this set of standardised tests, usually in Grade 11 and/or Grade 12.
In addition, all Grade 10 students will sit the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship (PSAT/NMSQT). The PSAT is a standardised test that provides practice for the SAT as well as providing feedback to the students about their academic capabilities in these areas.
UNIS Hanoi is proud that the PSAT and SAT scores of our students have been consistently above the world average for many years.
