We will consider the SAT score for whichever date/registration number that you provide (main/supplementary form). If you fill in the optional supplementary form for change of SAT date/registration number, please be sure to send us the scores for that date.

Ans: You are not allowed to change the data in the form or supplementary SAT data form (optional) after submission. It is also not possible at our end. So please ensure that you verify all data that you submit. Any discrepancy found later will lead to termination of your application or admission (as applicable).

Ans: Normally the Board/University/Institute will provide a conversion scale for letter grades or CGPA to percentage if there are no marks written on your marksheet. If you do not have such a scale available, we will request you to immediately ask your Board/University/Institute for a document which converts your CGPA or letter grades to a percentage. Alternatively, you may also ask for a document which shows marks obtained and the total marks for the exam if there is no possibility for conversion to a percentage scale.
