SAT is a standardized test for International college (any Bachelors degree program) admissions. The SAT is administered by College Board and is developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Nearly every college in USA and few more countries like Australia, New Zealand accept the SAT or SAT Subject Test as a part of its admissions process. That’s why more than two million students take the SAT every year.
Meaning Of SAT
Originally, SAT was an abbreviation for the Scholastic Aptitude Test. In 1993, the test was renamed the SAT I: Reasoning Test. At the same time, the former Achievement Tests were renamed the SAT II: Subject Tests. In 2004, the numerals “I” and “II” were dropped and the tests are now named the SAT Reasoning Test (or just SAT) and SAT Subject Tests. SAT is a simple and recognizable way of referring to the SAT Reasoning Test.
