SAT

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test.  It tests a student's knowledge of reading, writing, and math.  Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior years of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admissions decisions.

 The new SAT includes a Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and a Math Test. The SAT has an optional essay component, which some colleges will require. SAT questions focus on skills that matter most for college readiness and success, according to the latest research.
