Scholastic Aptitude Test
The Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SATI , or just simply "SAT," is a standardized test that tests the critical reasoning skills that are needed for success in college. The majority of students who take the test are high school juniors or seniors though the test can be taken earlier. The test contains three sections: a math section, a writing section, and a critical reading section. 800 points can be earned in each section; a student can recieve up to 2400 points on the SAT. The amount of points obtained in each section, and thus on the entire test, is always a multiple of 10. The SAT is widely regarded as being trivial compared to the AMC series competitions because it is meant for a large audience.
