What is the SAT Exam?

While high school grades are a very useful indicator of how students will perform in college, there is great variation in grading standards and course rigor within and across high schools. More than 80 years ago the College Board created the first standardized college entrance test to help colleges and universities identify students who could succeed at their institutions and to connect students with educational opportunities beyond high school.

Today, the SAT is the benchmark standardized assessment of the critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills students have developed over time and that they need to be successful in college. Each year, more than two million students take the SAT. Nearly every college in America uses the test as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student’s college readiness.

Educators trust the SAT as a useful part of the college application process because the SAT is

  • An internationally recognized, accurate measure of college readiness and scholarship potential.
  • The most researched standardized admissions test.
  • The standard in reliability and validity.

Most students take the SAT during their grade 11 or grade 12 year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.
