How to Register
Step 1: Have an email address and credit card
Candidates should note that all correspondence will be conducted via email. It is ESSENTIAL that candidates can provide and have access to a valid, functional email address. You must use the same email address for your university applications.
Note: To ensure your email provider does not flag important communication from the ISAT Office as spam, please save the ISAT email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your list of safe senders.
Step 2: Check the waiting period for ISAT
You must have at least 12 calendar months between sittings of ISAT.
For candidates attempting a second sitting of ISAT, you will not be permitted to register for a sitting of ISAT that is within 12 months of your last date of sitting. If you sit the test within 12 months the registration fee paid will be forfeited and the results from the second sitting of ISAT will be immediately withdrawn. The candidate will not be permitted to sit the test again until 12 months after the last sitting.
ISAT results are valid for two years from the test date. You may sit ISAT up to two years before your university applications.
Step 3: Check the name on your ISAT registration matches the name on your photo ID
You must use your full formal name as per your passport or other official identity documentation. Your name should be registered for the ISAT test exactly as it is used to apply to universities or admissions centres. This is an important element of matching test results and university applications.
Names are described in different ways on documentation:
The family name is sometimes called "surname" or "last name".
The given names are sometimes called "first name" and "second name"; the second name is also sometimes called "middle name".
The fields in the Prometric registration system are called "First name", "Middle name" and "Last name".
If you have an anglicised given name, as well as Asian given names, it is suggested you record the anglicised name as your middle name. See example below:

Once in the Prometric registration site, you must take a series of steps:
- Select the round green 'START HERE' button.

- Follow the prompts and selections through to the list of test centres available in your country.
- To view available dates and times for the coming 8 weeks at your chosen test centre click on 'Seat Availability'. This does not commit you to a test registration.
- To schedule an exam click on 'Schedule Appointment' and create a new Prometric account or login to your existing account. You must use the same email address for your university applications.
- Please note: be sure not to try and book your test on a public or national holiday - if such a date appears as available, please phone the test center and confirm that they will be open.
- In the registration form select the universities/courses you wish to apply to. This step is required so the universities can verify your results.
- Continue to follow the prompts if you are ready to complete your registration by making your payment. You will then receive confirmation via email.
