SAT

The SAT was formerly known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test, and now simply the SAT. This is a standardized test for undergraduate college admissions in the United States. Different US & Canadian universities practice this test for their undergraduate admission process. The SAT is recognized, issued, and developed by the college board, a non- profit organization in the United States. It was once developed, published, and scored by the Educational testing service (ETS) who now administers the exam. The SAT evaluates the critical thinking skills students need for academic progress in college – skills that students learned in high school.
