About SAT

Get introduced to the Test through our immaculate de-layering of information.

SAT is a standardized test for undergraduate students. Recently revamped to make it more relevant, the redesigned SAT focuses on the “college readiness” of a student. Owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a private, nonprofit organization in the United States, the Test is accepted by all U.S. colleges.

SAT is devised in a manner to assess students' readiness for college. Most students take SAT during their junior or senior year of high school. The test is administered six times a year. SAT is offered in the months of October, November, December, January, March (or April, alternating), May, and June. The test is typically offered on the first Saturday of the month. In other countries, the SAT is offered on the same dates as in the US, except for the first spring test date (i.e., March or April).

SAT assesses how well the test takers analyze and solve problems based on skills learnt at school or needed in college. Test is administered under a tight time limit (speeded) to help produce a range of scores. This can restrict brilliant students to average scores if they are not well prepared.
