About SAT®

The SAT®, originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. Developed and administered by the College Board, the SAT® assesses a student's readiness for college and is intended to provide colleges with a common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. Over the years, the SAT® has undergone various changes in its structure, content, and scoring. Regardless of its format, preparation for the SAT® often involves review courses, practice tests, and study guides, as performance on the SAT® can influence college admissions decisions, scholarship opportunities, and more. It's worth noting that the SAT® is just one of many factors that colleges consider during the admissions process. Other factors include high school GPA, extracurricular activities, personal essays, letters of recommendation, and interviews.
