SAT-Scholastic Assessment Test

Overview


The SAT is a general test of verbal and quantitative reasoning. The test is required for admission to undergraduate programs of most universities around the globe. The test is basically of two types i.e. SAT I Reasoning Test and SAT II Subject Test.

  1. SAT I
    The SAT I reasoning test is about three hours. The test comprises of multiple-choice questions to measure verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities that develop over time. The basic two sections of the test are evidence-based reading and writing, and Math. It will test your critical thinking and analytical skills. The new SAT has also a 50-minute essay component that is taken by the end of a test. It depends on various institutions whether they require the essay for admission or not. Mostly colleges require SAT-1 scores for admission.
  2. SAT II
    The SAT II subject test is for around one hour. It has multiple choice questions that measure your knowledge of certain subjects and your aptitude to apply that knowledge. Many universities might require to take the test along with SAT I . These competitive universities will need 2-3 subject tests. The subjects included in the test are Literature, US and World History, Mathematics Level 1 and 2, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. In addition to that, there are two types of language tests as well that are both with and without a listening component. The ones that are offered with the listening component are Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish. They are usually available during the November test cycle.
    Though many universities will not specify which subjects you should go for. But it is mostly recommended that the students should take those subject tests in which they are likely to do well. Usually, most of the students take subjects that correspond their A-levels or GCSEs which is a great option.
