The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a standardized exam used by many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada to help them make their admissions decisions. The test is developed and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) for the College Entrance Examination Board. The SAT tests verbal and mathematical reasoning skills — your ability to understand what you read, to use language effectively, to reason clearly, and to apply fundamental mathematical principles to unfamiliar problems.
The SAT test is about three-hour, mostly multiple-choice examination divided into sections. One of the sections is experimental. Your score on the other non-experimental sections is the score colleges use to evaluate your application.
SAT is taken by high school students who wish to pursue higher education in the United State. SAT scores also determine a student’s eligibility to receive certain scholarship. With good SAT scores, students who would like to study in Australia from Indonesian school with National/National Plus Curriculum, can take a direct entry to Year 1 of the University, without the needs to take foundation year. This approach saves time and tuition for the students and parents.
Please check with the University directly for the required SAT score for its department. SAT Preparation is perfectly taken when a student is in between year 9 and early year 12. The SAT result itself is valid for 5 years since the date it is taken.
