Cost of Registering for the SAT in Singapore
When registering for the SAT on the CollegeBoard website you must decide whether or not to include the SAT Essay component in the registration, which is sometimes either required or recommended for certain US Universities. Just taking the normal SAT is priced at $49.50, while with the Essay it is $64.50. All costs are in US Dollars and correct at time of writing. The cost of registering for the SAT in Singapore will also include a “Non-U.S. Regional Fee”, currently set at $53 for the East Asia/Pacific region. There can also be a Test Centre Fee of $24.00, but typically not in Singapore. A late registration fee can also be charged, but Singapore’s Test Centers usually fill-up well in advance of the test date, so take care to register early to secure your seat! If you do secure a seat through the Waitlist you will be charged a further Waitlist Fee of $53 on the day, so try get in early to avoid that.
Changing your SAT Registration
If you need to, it is possible to change your SAT registration to a new Centre or Date, provided there are seats available, but you would need to pay a $30.00 fee. You can also pay the Change Fee to switch from the regular SAT to the SAT Subject Tests or vice versa, for example if you booked a “back-up” SAT date but already secured your desired result. For those “adding-on” the Essay, you only have to top-up the difference, so don’t worry about penalties!
