The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is an assessment aimed at predicting academic success in college. Most students take the test in their junior and/or senior years. The SAT tests your knowledge in reading, math, and writing. It is recommended that students take the SAT (or ACT, see below) one time during their junior year, or prior, and at least once again in their senior year, if necessary.
