IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING DIGITAL SAT TEST 11 March 2023
SAT is still becoming one of the important aspects of the university admission process. Even when US universities are still extending their test-optional policy, many students seek to find a way to show their readiness by taking the SAT test. Looking at the importance of having SAT and in our contribution to help students reach their goals, IICS is planning to open the school for SAT Test on March 11, 2023. However, looking at the prolonged pandemic situation, more protocols and regulations are needed to minimize the risk for everyone involved.
The government’s has decided to revoke the PPKM policy (Restrictions Towards Community Activities) in Jakarta since Friday, December 30, 2022. Indonesian President Jokowi officially dismissed the enforcement of public mobility restrictions or PPKM which was aimed at curbing COVID-19 transmission. But it is still mandatory to wear a face mask in public area. Keep a physical distance of at least 1 metre from others, even if they don’t appear to be sick, and avoid crowds or close contact. Cover mouth and nose with a bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of used tissues immediately and clean hands regularly. If participants develop even a mild cough or low-grade fever (i.e. a temperature of 37.3 C or more) they should stay at home and self-isolate. Your consideration of other people's safety and health will be greatly appreciated.
Failure to follow the protocol will result in dismissal from our test center. Please refer to the message by the College Board as shown below (the link to this information was provided in the SAT Terms and Conditions):
