SAT is a standardized test used for assessing college readiness of students. In its current avatar, the SAT Reasoning Test, as it is referred today, was introduced in 2005. The length of the test is three hours and forty five minutes and the fee is $49. Possible scores range from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800 points sections namely mathematics, critical reading and writing.
SAT assesses how well the test takers analyze and solve problems through skills that they developed in school and will need in college. A combination of SAT results along with the GPA of school provides a better indication of success in college rather than just the school GPA.
The SAT is offered seven times a year in the United States; in October, November, December, January, March (or April, alternating), May, and June. The test is typically offered on the first Saturday of the month for the November, December, May, and June administrations.
