About the SAT

The SAT is a standardized exam designed to measure college readiness. Most colleges or universities in the US require that students submit either the SAT or the ACT with their applications. The exam provides a useful metric of student aptitude and critical reasoning. This along with a method to compare applicants to one another.

The SAT is composed of two scored sections:

  • Math (Two sections: one permits the use of a calculator and the other does not)
  • Reading/Writing (Two sections: one testing Reading Comprehension and the other testing grammar and editorial skills)


Each section of the SAT (Math and Reading/Writing) has a possible score of 200-800. These two scores are added together for a potential total score of 400-1600.

What SAT® Score Do You Need to Get Into College?

Score ranges vary dramatically based on each college's selectivity. Ivy League applicants often earn nearly perfect or perfect scores, but many colleges accept students with score ranges between 1000-1200. No matter where you plan on applying, you will always improve your chances for admission and academic scholarships by preparing for the SAT!
