    SAT

    The SAT is a 3 hour and 45 minute exam that consists of 10 subsections ranging over three sections: Mathematics, Critical Reading and Writing.  The design of the assessment is to measure literary, writing & analytical skills to determine academic success in college. Scores range from 200 – 800 on each of the main sections for a total possible score range of 400 – 1600.  Combined with a student’s GPA and course selection, universities use SAT results to get a quantitative picture of a student.
