About EST

The Egyptian Ministry of Education and Technical Education is pleased to announce the second cycle of the newly developed “Egyptian Scholastic Test” (EST) designed specifically to measure the skills and knowledge acquired by Egyptian students in the American education system in Egypt. It is a computer based exam that is developed as an alternative or an equivalent test to the SAT or ACT international exams for the purpose of allowing Egyptian students, in the American education system, to qualify for admissions to Egyptian higher education institutions. The EST suite of assessments include EST I and EST II, which are similar in nature to the structure of the SAT suite of assessments. The EST is designed to assess students of American Diploma against common core standards.
