TRIO World Academy is now an authorised testing centre for the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT.  

TRIO has cultivated a culture that encourages students to build capabilities and skills that help them secure admissions at the best colleges and universities in the USA, Canada, UK, India, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany and other countries through our University Guidance Programme. Over 100 global universities have accepted TRIO students into their programmes till date.  

We now offer a world-class testing centre for SAT/PSAT aspirants at Bengaluru. Our test centre code is 63796. It is open to eligible SAT takers who are students of the school as well as from outside. The opportunity to be a SAT centre is another milestone in TRIO’s story towards to helping students secure a seat in universities in the USA. 

The test will be offered in a digital format (digital SAT).


The SATs are a widely recognised standardised test, which is used for admissions to undergraduate programmes of colleges and universities in the United States of America.  

It is used to measure the literacy, critical reading and mathematical skills of high school students and assess them for success at college level. It is conducted by College Board, a private American non-profit.  

PSAT/NMSQT (or Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) not only helps students become eligible for the National Merit Scholarships but are also a great way to practice for the SAT. PSATs do not get considered for college admissions.

TRIO is an authorised centre for the updated digital SATs. These tests can now be taken on a tablet or a laptop, instead of using pen-and-paper. The duration has been shortened from 3 hours to 2. The test also now has shortened reading passages and a built-in calculator facility.
