College Admission Tests

You may be familiar with USA college admission tests by name — the SAT, SAT Subject Tests and PSAT. These tests also called college entrance exams, are designed to measure students’ skills and help evaluate how ready students are for college-level work.

The International School of Western Australia is proud to be a selected school within Australia that offers local and international students the opportunity to sit/take college admission tests.


The SAT is a standardised test widely used for college admissions in the United States. Most colleges require SAT scores because the results are the only common comparison that exists for students coming from a variety of schools and backgrounds. For students planning on attending college/furthering their education in the USA or Canada, SATs (or the similar ACT test) are required by almost all universities. Non-USA students applying from schools may be required to submit SAT scores if applying to universities in their home countries. The PSAT is encouraged as a practice SAT. Online practice materials are available on the Khan Academy website
