About SAT 2020

The SAT, originally known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test and later as the Scholastic Assessment Test, is a standardized test adopted by the United States for admissions to universities and colleges offering undergraduate programs. The developer or administrator of the admission test is College Board and is administered on behalf of the Educational Testing Service (ETS). 

The test was introduced in the US to assess the readiness of students for college. Founded in the year 1926, the exam has been renamed a number of times since then. As of today, the Scholastic Aptitude Test has been renamed to SAT Reasoning Test and the letters SAT no longer stand for anything. Candidates seeking admission to undergraduate courses in the US, Canada and other countries must take the SAT Reasoning Test. 

The SAT is offered internationally in October, December, March, and May and the SAT Subject Tests are available internationally in October, November, December, May, and June.
