SAT testing at IUS-u

For many years, the International University of Sarajevo (IUS) is organizing SAT testing (Scholastic Aptitude Test) for high school students from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina. This year's testing was held on Saturday, January 24, 2015.  Senior Assistant, Sadi Fadda from the Economics Program of the Faculty of Business and Administration (FBA) organized the testing for interested candidates. SAT test is the most widely used standardized aptitude test, used as entrance examination test for admission to most faculties and universities in the United States. International, domestic and American students are taking the test as requirement for admission.  The test is part of the regular enrollment process and serves as an objective tool that allows committees for admission at faculties, to examine the level of knowledge of candidates who apply. 

SAT testing is taking place 7 times a year in the United States, and six times a year around the world. The prestigious universities in United States of America and the world rely on the results of SAT scores, when deciding to give scholarships to potential students. Test results may be better indicators of students’ knowledge than his/her school grades (because of the different assessment systems worldwide). To enter the SAT testing exam the students need to have good knowledge of English, and knowledge from different areas or subjects. There are two types of tests: “SAT Reasoning” which assesses the ability of critical thinking and problem solving skills, and “SAT Subject” that assesses knowledge of a particular area or a foreign language. For all interested candidates who wish to take the SAT exam, please apply online: 

The next tests are scheduled for May 2, 2015 and June 6, 2015.
