ISAT Test Dates 2020

The International Student Admissions Test (ISAT) 2020 test dates are available during 4 9-day testing periods. With effect from May 2020, the ISAT testing cycle will no longer run from March to the following February like previous years.

  • Cycle 1: May 16 – May 24, 2020
  • Cycle 2: August 15 – August 23, 2020
  • Cycle 3: November 21 – November 29, 2020
  • Cycle 4: February 2021 (more information on the exact testing period will be released later this year)

During the ISAT registration process, candidates will be given the choice to select the test centre location, date and time. The ISAT can be taken at any time during the testing period/cycle. But do keep in mind, you can take the ISAT only once every 12 months. Once you take the test, your scores will remain valid for the next 2 years.
