What is the SAT?

The current SAT was adopted in 2016 with the explicit purpose of increasing the effectiveness of the test.

The SAT contains the following sections:

  • Reading  – “skills and knowledge at the heart of education: the stuff you’ve been learning in high school, the stuff you’ll need to succeed in college. It’s about how you take in, think about, and use information.” **
  • Writing and Language  – questions which test “command of evidence,” “words in context,” “analysis in History, Social Studies and in Science,” “expression of ideas,” and “Standard English Conventions.”
  • Math  – questions that are designed to mirror the problem-solving and modeling you’ll do in:
    • College math, science, and social science courses
    • The jobs that you hold
    • Your personal life
  • The Essay component will have a complete makeover and will be “like a typical college writing assignment in which you’re asked to analyze a text.”

All of the skills will be within the context of a strictly timed and fiercely competitive exam.  For this reason, some students who are accustomed to earning top grades in school are surprised to see that their SAT scores lag behind. Such students often benefit from test preparation techniques and a thorough understanding of the format and nature of the test.

 Who is it for?

Any student interested in attending university in the US should consider taking the SAT or at least a mock exam.  Taking a mock or practice exam allows students to understand where they rank among students worldwide, which universities they should consider researching, and what steps they need to take to earn the score they need to attend their ideal school.

Furthermore, once students have earned an SAT score they are able to better understand how admissions scores such as the SAT fit into the overall academic profile of a college applicant.  School grades, extracurricular activities, and personal essays are just some of the additional factors that admissions officers weigh along with SAT scores in determining who gets admitted and who doesn’t.

 When to take it?

The SAT is offered four times a year internationally – in October, December, March, and May. Most students take the SAT for the first time during the winter of their Grade 11/Year 12 year and a second time during the fall of their Grade 12/Year 13 year. In today’s competitive environment, however, a number of clients have also started their preparation in 10th grade and earlier.
