Scholastic Aptitude Test
The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test administered by the College Board. The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. Overall, the higher a student score on the SAT, the more options for attending and paying for college will be available to you.
