The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a standardized test that is used by colleges and universities to evaluate students’ knowledge in English, math, and reading. It is designed to measure how well you’ll do in college. SAT is administered 5 times a year in the months of March, May, August, October, and December.
If you’re planning to study abroad and get admission to a college in the upcoming academic year, it’s important to time your SAT. When you apply for any college, you should have your SAT score ready. Here are important dates to help you plan your calendar:
The SAT includes three main sections: Math, Evidence-Based Reading, and Writing.
- In the Math section, you’ll take a multiple-choice test. You’ll have 45 minutes to complete it, with 10 minutes for each of the three sections: algebra (37 questions), geometry (37 questions), and data analysis (10 questions).
- The Evidence-Based Reading section contains four passages — two critical reading passages and two writing passages — that are based on real academic content. You’ll be given a list of answer choices as well as a passage summary and passage context.
- In the Writing section, you’ll be presented with one prompt that asks you to write an essay in response to a given prompt. The prompt might be about a topic in your own life or an experience from someone else’s life.
