For students wishing to achieve entry into a university in either the U.S., Canada, and some Thai Universities, either the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) or General Equivalency Diploma (GED) is required as proof of the student having reached an acceptable standard in a range of subjects. These include English reading and writing, maths, science and social studies.
The GED is used to show a high school (secondary school) level diploma and qualifies as such in many situations. The SAT is used to gain entrance into university.
At International House Chiang Mai we understand the importance of the SAT and GED qualifications and the challenges that they can present. After all, most of us have taken them during our own school years.
