The extremely lucrative Tuckwell Scholarships can also be applied for as part of the process.

SATs for Applications to US Colleges

If you are interested in applying to study in the USA, then you will need to sit an SAT.  These tests are only held a few times each year and have limited places available so you need to register early.  You are advised to take one SAT when you are in Year 11 and you can take another later if you want to. Consult the College Board website for dates, locations and registration details. If you are intending to apply to the US then you need to speak to your Careers Counsellor as soon as possible.
