The SAT® is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. Developed and administered by the College Board, the SAT assesses a high school student's readiness for college and provides a common data point for colleges to compare all applicants. The exam primarily consists of two main sections: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Math. There's also an optional Essay section, which some colleges may require.

Reading Test: It includes passages from literature, historical documents, social sciences, and natural sciences. Test takers are required to read and comprehend the passages and answer questions based on them. The focus is on command of evidence, understanding words in context, and analysis of history/social studies and science. It consists of 52 questions to be completed in 65 minutes.

Writing and Language Test: This part assesses a student's ability to read and find mistakes or weaknesses in a series of passages. It tests grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and understanding of the effective use of language within context. There are 44 questions, and students have 35 minutes to complete this part.

Math: The Math section covers a range of math practices, with questions on problem-solving, using tools strategically, and modeling. It spans algebra, problem-solving and data analysis, advanced math, and some geometry and trigonometry concepts. The section is divided into two portions: one that allows the use of a calculator and one that does not. In total, there are 58 questions–45 multiple choice and 13 grid-in answers, to be completed in 80 minutes.

Essay (Optional): The Essay section, if chosen, gives students 50 minutes to analyze a 650-750 word document and write an essay that assesses the argument's strength based on evidence provided within the text. While this section is optional, some colleges may require or recommend it for admission.

The SAT® scores range from 400 to 1600. The Essay, if taken, is scored separately. This comprehensive exam is designed to test the skills and knowledge that studies have shown to be essential for college and career readiness and success.
Test Information
The final SAT® score is the sum of the section scores, with a maximum overall score of 1600. The SAT is 2 hours and 14 minutes long.
