The SAT, which stands for “Scholastic Aptitude Test”, is a standardised examination produced by the American College Board. This test is something which many colleges and universities in the United States utilise as part of their entrance programme. The content of the test is split up into 3 core segments : Reading, Writing and Mathematics. The highest grade obtainable is 1600, however anything above 1500 puts you in a decent position if you plan to apply to an Ivy league school- Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania and Yale University.

The SAT also offers students an option to take an additional 50 minute essay, which will be graded independently from the rest of the test. Including the essay, a student would be sitting the test for 3 hours and 50 minutes. The majority of students who take the SAT begin studying for it months in advance. One can make drastic progress by familiarising themselves with the types and wordings of questions. Another substantial point of information is that you must check test dates beforehand so you can meet the sign up deadline.
