The SAT Reasoning Test (SAT I) is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States. The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board- USA. The current SAT Reasoning Test takes three hours and forty-five minutes and costs $45 ( additional $26 for international students, extra $23 for India/Pakistan centres). In SAT test, one can possibly score from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800-point sections (math, critical reading, and writing), along with other subsections scored separately.
The SAT test has been more popular among colleges in the coasts and the ACT test more popular in the Midwest and South. There are some colleges that require the ACT to be taken for college course placement, and a few schools that formerly did not accept the SAT at all. Nearly all colleges accept the SAT test.
