SAT Overview

The SAT, or Scholastic Assessment Test, is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. It is designed to assess a student’s readiness for college and is intended to provide colleges with a common data point that can be used to compare the academic abilities of applicants from different schools and backgrounds. The SAT is owned and developed by the College Board, a non-profit organization.
The test consists of several sections, including Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Mathematics. The EBRW section further includes Reading and Writing and Language components. There is also an optional essay section. The SAT is known for its multiple-choice format, and it assesses critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills.
Scores on the SAT range from 400 to 1600, combining the scores from the EBRW and Math sections. The optional essay is scored separately on a scale of 6 to 24. The test is offered several times a year, and students typically register for it in advance.
