SAT – Scholastic Assessment Test. SAT is a distinguished admission test required to be given by the candidates who wish to seek admission to undergraduate programs primarily in USA.
SAT scores are used by more than 4,000 undergraduate programs primarily in USA. SAT is conducted Four times a year in India, in the months of March, May, October, and December. The test is scheduled on the first Saturday of these months. The new SAT focuses more on the skills and knowledge that you will likely encounter in high schools, college and in the job aspect.
The SAT has four sections: Reading, Writing and Language, Math (no calculator), and Math (calculator allowed). The test taker may optionally write an essay which, in that case, is the fifth test section. The total time for the scored portion of the SAT is 3 hours (or three hours and fifty minutes if the optional essay section is taken).
Some test takers who are not taking the essay may also have a fifth section, which is used, at least in part, for the pretesting of questions that may appear on future administrations of the SAT. (These questions are not included in the computation of the SAT score.)
