What is the SAT?
The SAT, formerly known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test, is an exam that’s required by US universities to determine if students are accepted or not and, in some cases, whether they can apply for an academic scholarship as well.
The SAT was created by The College Board with the purpose of providing common criteria to compare applicants. Nevertheless, the relevance of the score obtained on the SAT varies from college to college.
The SAT evaluates 3 sections: Math, Reading Comprehension and Writing. The Writing section requires the applicant to develop an essay that will be graded and taken in account towards the final score.
The SAT takes around 3 hors and 45 minutes to complete, and each section is graded using a scale that goes from 200 to 800 points, the latter being considered a full score.
