SAT Reasoning Test or SAT I
A standardized test, SAT I measures Verbal, Mathematical and Writing skills. The test intends to primarily aid Undergrad Schools to assess the potential of the applicants for advanced study. Universities in the US, while inviting applications from prospective students, ask for SAT I scores.
The examination is entirely a paper-based Test. The test is scored on a maximum of 2400. The SAT I score alone cannot guarantee admission into a school – the test is only one of the major factors taken into consideration in the long process of an applicant getting admitted into a graduate school he/she desires.
Who can attend SAT 1
The SAT 1 or SAT as it is commonly known is a required test for students who wish to apply for admission into a university in the United States. It is usually taken by high school students in their 10th, 11th or 12th grades. Local students in the upper secondary as well as junior college levels may also take this test.
