What is the SAT?

“The SAT is the nations’ most widely used college admission test. More than two million students take the SAT every year in over 170 countries. It is what most colleges use to get to know you better. It helps them understand how you think, solve problems and communicate.”

The SAT tests students’ knowledge of subjects that are necessary for college success: reading, writing, and mathematics. The SAT assesses the critical thinking skills students need for academic success in college, skills that students learned in high school. The SAT is required for admission to most colleges throughout the country.

When to take the SAT:

Most students take the SAT during their junior year of High School, and a second time during their Senior Year.
