The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test/Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States. The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board , a nonprofit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service that still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student’s reasoning ability that is required for college admission. It was first called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test, but now SAT does not stand for anything, hence it is an empty acronym. It takes three hours and forty-five minutes to finish the test. Possible scores range from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800-point sections (Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing).SAT consists of three major sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Each section receives a score on the scale of 200–800. All scores are multiples of 10. Total scores are calculated by adding up scores of the three sections. Each major section is divided into three parts. There are 10 sub-sections, including an additional 25-minute experimental or “equating” section that may be in any of the three major sections. The experimental section is used to normalize questions for future administrations of the SAT and does not count toward the final score.Format
The SAT is a 3 hours and 45 minutes test. Only three hours and twenty minutes of the test count toward your score– the experimental section is not scored. There are ten sections in the test as shown in above picture.NOTE: The order of the format is not fixed: the sections can occur in any order
