Although, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the college board did have plans to conduct online SATs in Fall 2020 where in person testing wasn’t possible- but this never saw fruition as they later announced in July 2020 that all upcoming SATs would be held in-person only.

The College Board is rumored to be considering an online version of the test but has not confirmed the same officially.

How often is the SAT exam held in India?

The SAT Exam is conducted 5 times a year in India by the College Board.  The SAT exams are held in the months of March, May, August, October and December in India.
