What are the SAT and ACT?

SAT and ACT

The Standardized Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that most, if not ALL, universities require for the admission process Students are tested in mathematics and evidence-based reading and writing, and both sections have a grading scale of 200-800, meaning that the total maximum score that can be obtained is 1600.

The American College Test (ACT) is also a college entrance exam that is accepted by most, if not ALL, universities. Similarly to the SAT, students are tested in reading, mathematics, English, and science. The grading scale is 1-36.

 

SAT SUBJECT TESTS

There are 20 different multiple-choice standardized tests administered by The College Board on individual subjects, usually taken to improve a student's credentials for admission to colleges. When you take the SAT Subject Tests, you must select three subjects in at least two different areas.
