math test with hand and pencil

This is a standardized test owned and published by the College Entrance Examination Board and required by many colleges and universities used to evaluate incoming students and more than two million students take the SAT every year. The test evaluates college readiness in applicants, alongside their high school GPA, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and extracurricular activities. The test is typically offered October through January, and in March, May, June, and August each year. It consists of a combined reading/writing section and a math section, each scored out of 800 points. The revised essay section is graded separately. The test format emphasizes context of vocabulary, scientific reasoning, and your ability to form logical arguments in the reading section. The test evaluates the logic of your ideas and punctuation skills on the writing section, while data analysis and real world problem solving are crucial in the math section. 

Contact your high school guidance counselor for additional information on registering for the official SAT test. Most students take the SAT for the first time during the spring of their junior year and a second time during the fall of their senior year of high school.
