WHAT IS THE SCHOLASTIC APTITUDE TEST (SAT)?
The SAT is a standardised test that assesses fundamental critical reading, arithmetic, and writing abilities. Most colleges and universities require candidates to provide ACT or SAT scores. Students can normally take their preferred test, but it is advisable to verify with colleges of interest before making a decision (unless the student plans to take both exams). Standardised examinations are a vital part of the admissions process, and students should do their best to demonstrate to institutions that they know what they're talking about. The SAT is divided into three parts, each with its own subsection. The three major portions will be rated from 200 to 800. The total score for all areas will be between 600 and 800.
