College Admission Testing
College Admission Testing at
Dalat International School
Dalat International School is pleased to offer a variety of external, college-prep standardized tests each year. Registration for the ACT & SAT (available to the public) is done completely online, and AP/PSAT testing is for Dalat/DLRC-homeschool students only. We are required to direct you the official sites (listed below) to receive answers to all your questions for ACT and SAT testing.
Due to COVID-19 we have 75 seats for the SAT/Essay, 30 for SAT Subject Tests and 25 seats for the ACT. Since they fill up very quickly please register early directly with those companies. Dalat International School has no involvement in the registration process.
Advanced Placement (AP) Exams
AP testing at Dalat is only for Dalat/DLRC-homeschool students. Please check the College Board website here to test as an “exam only” external student at other test centers in Malaysia like Nexus International School – Kuala Lumpur (firstname.lastname@example.org) and in Singapore at the United States Education Information Center (USEIC).
Campus Access on Test Day
For all tests, be sure to check their international test dates, not domestic test dates, and you will be shown which test dates are available at Dalat and other schools in Malaysia.
On the day of the test, you will first check in at Security/Front Gate as early as 7 am and be given instructions to test admission.
Parents/guardians/drivers will have to exit campus after dropping off students.
