THE SAT (11TH & 12TH GRADE)
The SAT is a college admissions exam that is accepted by most colleges and universities to make entrance decisions. As of March 2016, there are two sections: Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing.
Each section of the SAT is scored on a 200-800 point scale, making the highest possible score for both sections a 1600. Though there previously was an optional Essay section, as of June 2021, the Essay is no longer offered for SATs given during Saturday administrations. The test should take about three hours.
