About the SAT Tests

Originally, SAT was an acronym for the Scholastic Aptitude Test. In 1993, the test was renamed the SAT I: Reasoning Test, and the former Achievement Tests were renamed the SAT II: Subject Tests. The SAT I is a three-hour test that measures verbal and mathematical skills. Scores are used for college admission because the test predicts readiness for college work. The SAT II: Subject Tests are one-hour, primarily multiple-choice tests in specific subjects. These tests measure knowledge or skills in a particular subject and your ability to apply that knowledge. Many colleges require or recommend one or more of the Subject Tests for admission or placement. View frequently asked questions at CollegeBoard.com.
