The SAT is a three-hour standardized test used in the admissions process for some, but not all, colleges. The SAT has multiple choice sections covering math, evidence-based reading, and writing. Each section of the SAT is scored on a 200-800 point scale with the highest possible score of 1600. In spring of 2024 the SAT will be delivered in a digital format at U.S. schools and test centers. Testing accommodations, such as large print or extended time, are available to students with documented physical or learning disabilities. Depending on personal preference, college applicants typically take either the ACT or SAT; colleges will accept either test. Fee waivers are available to eligible students.
