College Board SAT

The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test ) is a measure of the critical thinking skills needed for academic success in college. It assesses how well you analyze and solve problems. Each section of the SAT is scored on a scale of 200-800, and the writing section will contain two subscores. The SAT is typically taken by high school juniors and seniors.

The SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as the ability to apply that knowledge. Subject tests are one hour and multiple choice tests. Many colleges use these exams as an indication of subject mastery and as an entrance requirement. Some colleges specify the Subject Tests they require; others allow applicants to choose which tests to take. Check which tests your college(s) require.

The multiple choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading and science. The Writing Test, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay.
