SAT stands for Scholastic Assessment Test. U.S. Colleges, universities, and scholarship programs use your academic record, test scores, participation in extracurricular
activities, teacher recommendations, and application essays to see how well prepared you are to do college-level work. Scores on standardized tests like the SAT I:
Reasoning Test and the SAT II: Subject Tests help colleges compare the academic achievements of the students.
The SAT I: Reasoning Test measures verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities that you develop over time.
The SAT II: Subject Tests measure your knowledge of particular subjects and your ability to apply that knowledge.
Fewer than 50% of colleges/universities require an SAT from international students. Only about 31 schools require the SAT II and most of these are the highly selective
institutions. Most colleges that award financial aid or scholarships, however, require the SAT I and a few require the SAT II as well.
