Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities in US, Canada as well as other countries to select students for admissions to undergraduate courses. However, SAT is attempted by students who are in their 11 and 12 grade or equivalent. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation (LoR), interviews and personal essays.
The best time to take SAT depends on a variety of factors like the schools to which you’re planning, your application deadlines, your cash flow and your personality.
The SAT is a globally accepted standardised test that measures a student’s skills in three basic areas: Math, Critical Reading and Writing. Students in classes 11 and 12 take SAT so that they can submit their scores to colleges as part of the college application process.
