The SAT is the most widely used test for students to assess their knowledge before they are accepted into college. SAT once stood for Scholastic Aptitude Test, but now, it stands for the Scholastic Assessment Test. The test consists of several parts, including critical reading, mathematics, and writing. These combined scores allow universities to analyze how well a student has learned throughout their high school years and how much knowledge they have retained. Once you've taken the SAT, the scores can then be submitted with your college application for possible acceptance. This process can be very stressful for high school students, so it's important to be prepared. Once you practice and know what to expect, you should be able to score highly and get into the college of your dreams.
