What is the SAT?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

The SAT is a globally recognized college admissions test that consists of two subject area tests – Math and Evidence-Based Writing and Reading. Each will be scored on a scale of 200 to 800 points. The essay is optional and will not be factored into your overall SAT score. The essay scores will be shown separately on the report. The exam will have 154 questions and is 3 hours long (plus 50 minutes if you are taking the essay).

You can retake the exam as many times as you like, however in general we have found scores do not significantly change after 3 attempts.
