About SAT: What and Why?

The SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test owned, developed, and published by the College Board,  a private, not-for-profit organization in the United States.  The SAT is accepted for admission in undergraduate colleges in the United States. A great SAT score helps in securing Scholarships.

There are 2 types of SAT exams: SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Test. 

The SAT Reasoning Test is the most widely taken, while the Subject test is taken to select specific courses based on the requirements. The SAT Reasoning Test is used to evaluate a student's reading, writing, and mathematical skills, while the SAT Subjects Test is used to evaluate a candidate's knowledge of specific subjects. 

The SAT takes three hours to complete, plus an additional 50 minutes for the Essay, which is optional.

Apart from SAT scores, the other factors that are important for admission-related decisions are your High School GPA, Statement of Purpose (SOP), Letter of Recommendation (LOR), interviews, and essays.
