KLIS Officially Became a SAT and AP Test Center

Friday 5th of March 2021 | News

Recently, authorized by College Board, KL International School (KLIS) officially became a SAT and AP test center. From 2021, students from KLIS can take SAT and AP exams on campus.

01   KLIS as a SAT Test Center Set up by the School Itself

SAT is an academic proficiency test for high school graduates administered by College Board. It aims to examine whether students are academically ready for college. It is a standardized test widely recognized by universities around the world and is one of the important references for overseas universities to admit students.

At present, there is no test center for SAT in mainland China, and candidates can only go to Hong Kong, Taiwan or overseas to take the test. Long-distance travel and unfamiliar environment usually cause much inconvenience to candidates . Especially in the case of epidemic, candidates are faced with many uncertainties. Candidates who have to travel abroad to take the examination are faced with problems such as limited international flights and the need for quarantine and nucleic acid testing.

Advantages of Being a SAT Test Center Set up by the School Itself

◆  Reduced time

◆ Low transportation cost

◆ Safety factors

◆ Swift transfer

◆ Flexible response to emergencies (SAT test cancelled many times in case of force majeure)

After KLIS becomes the SAT test center, it will definitely bring great benefits for students signing up for the test. Students in school can easily attend the exam without traveling, thus avoiding the extra cost of time and transportation.

"We are honored that KLIS passed the inspection conducted by College Board in 2021, and officially became a SAT and AP test center, which can provide many benefits for KLIS students and verify the credibility of KLIS as an American international school. At present, the SAT and AP coordinators of our school are actively communicating with the College Board and acquiring the latest official examination policies and further education information from College Board, so as to help KLIS students take examinations and plan further education."

——Mandy, College Counselor @KLIS

02   KLIS Officially Became an AP Test Center

AP courses, Advanced Placement in American universities, refer to College Board University-level courses offered in high schools. Only teachers certified by College Board are qualified to teach AP courses.

Currently, there is only one AP test center in Chongqing, which is Chongqing Education Social Examination Service Center.

As an AP test center, KLIS will stay tuned.
