SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test)

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. Each section of your SAT (critical reading, mathematics and writing) will be scored on a 200- to 800-point scale, for a possible total of 1600. You’ll also get two “subscores” on the writing section: a multiple-choice score from 20 to 80, and an essay score from 2 to 12. But how do you get these scores? Two steps happen before you see a final score. First, your raw score is figured out by Adding points for correct answers and Subtracting a fraction of a point for wrong answers. Total test time: 3 hours and 45 minutes. Most students take the SAT during the spring of their junior year of high school. Many students choose to take the SAT a second time in the fall of their senior year after becoming familiar with the test day experience

Questions that you skipped don’t count either for or against your score, and points aren’t taken away for wrong answers on the math questions where you needed to fill the answers in a grid. Then your raw score is taken and turned into a scaled score. This is where the score of 200–800 points comes from, and it is done through a statistical process called “equating.” This process makes it possible to compare your score with the scores of other students who took alternative versions of the test, and to your own scores on previous tests
