What is the SAT and why is it important?

Created by the College Board, the SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. However, it is just one factor in the admissions decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, interviews, and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school.

The SAT exam is offered nationally every year in October, November, December, January, March, May and June.

What does the SAT test?

As of March 2016, there are two SAT sections:  Math, Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, plus an optional Essay. The Essay results are reported separately. Start to finish, the test will take you three hours and 50 minutes.

Should I take the SAT or the ACT?

In many cases, schools will accept either exam, so it’s up to you to figure out which test to take.

How is the SAT scored?

Each section of the SAT is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale, making the “perfect” score 1600.

How do I know if my SAT score is good enough to get me into my dream school?

The first administration of the redesigned SAT was in March 2016. The College Board has released concordance information to help admission officers understand the new scores in relation to the old SAT scores and ACT scores.

How can I prepare?
