About SAT 2021

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 such as Hofstra UniversityCarnegie Mellon University, USA; Columbia University, and more. 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.

Apart from the United States, candidates can also apply for admissions in abroad universities in countries like Canada, UK, Australia and Singapore. Candidates can take admission in the bachelor’s courses with a valid SAT scorecard. The SAT is offered internationally in October, December, March, and May.

Latest Update (as of January 19, 2021): The SAT subject tests have been scrapped along with the optional essay
