Earlier known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test; the SAT got re-named to SAT Reasoning Test. Now, it is simply called SAT. The SAT is aimed to assess critical thinking skills and knowledge in various subjects that help in boosting your academics. However, SAT also reflects the high school curriculum as it is an exam designed for the high-school junior and senior students. SAT does not test logic or abstract reasoning.
The assessment of the test is about the knowledge and skills attained in and outside the classroom, including how a student thinks, solve problems and communicate. It serves as an indicator for the colleges of how the student will perform in college. Most students take the SAT for the first time during the spring of their junior year and the second time during the fall of their senior year.
The duration of SAT is 3 hours and 45 minutes. The three sections of SAT are Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing. Your total score is your overall score and is a combination of your section scores (see below). The highest composite score for the redesigned SAT is 800+800, or 1600. The average score is 1000.
