Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan University Admission Test (SAAT),a National Level Entrance Test is conducted by Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan University every year to select bright students from different parts of our country. The test is being conducted for different programs offered in different constituent institutes / schools of the university.
