you could try http://www.testtakers-sg.com/ or www.useic.org. But personally I think self-studying works just as well, from personal experience.

For SAT 1 you can just buy the blue official book and practice over and over... for SAT 2 your school curriculum should put you in good stead for subjects like physics, math, chemistry, and biology.

For SAT I, get the official blue book. And try to finish the whole test in one sitting. I find that it does help, especially for Writing. As for SAT II, whatever you're doing for 'A' levels should be more than enough. One or two weeks' preparations (especially for SAT I) should be adequate.

Hi Shazwi, welcome to the BrightSparks forum =)

SAT 1 and 2 are only required for applications to US universities. So if you aren't intending to apply there, don't bother.

If you do intend to apply to the US, all universities require SAT 1. SAT 2 is a bit more tricky as it varies amongst the unis. Some require 3, some 2, others none at all but still "strongly recommend" that you take it anyway. Best if you check the requirements from the individual uni's website.

Hope this answers your question.

to add to what yanshuo said, if you're an A level science student the SAT subject tests are no problem. Take at least 1 Math II, and aim for 3 good subject test scores because every top applicant from Singapore will have those.

which ones are you looking at? I'm sure I can direct you to the sections about SAT, since it's very essential information for all applicants.
