About the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

Students’ SAT score is a pivotal component of your college applications. Most colleges use these scores to help decide whether to admit students or not.

Is one harder? Is one better? More prestigious? More useful? If only it were that simple. In many cases, schools will accept either exam, so it’s up to you to figure out which test to take. We can help you explore both tests

What is the SAT and why is it important?

Created by the College Board, the SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea (in theory, at least) is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants.

  • However, the SAT score is just one factor in the admissions decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, interviews, and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from
    school to school.
  • The SAT exam is offered nationally every year in October, November, December, January, March, May and June. View all upcoming SAT test dates.
What skills and knowledge does the SAT test?

As of March 2016, there are two SAT sections: Math, Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, plus an optional Essay. The Essay results are reported separately. Start to finish, the test will take you three hours and 50 minutes.

ACT versus SAT: How do I choose?

The best way to decide if the SAT or ACT is right for you is to take a timed full-length practice test in each. Since the content and style of the SAT and ACT are very similar, factors like how you handle time pressure and what types of questions you find most challenging can help you determine which test is a better fit. For example, the pace of the SAT gives you a tad more time to think through problems, while the ACT can be more of a time crunch. Some students really thrive under the pressure of the clock, while others prefer the extra time to ponder a question.
