Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.
The SAT doesn’t test logic or abstract reasoning. It tests the skills you’re learning in school: reading, writing and math.
- The critical reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions.
- The writing section includes a short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and improving grammar and usage.
- The mathematics section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability.
