Admission In Medical College

SAT

The SAT is a standardized test for most college admissions in the United States

The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a private, nonprofit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service which still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times. It was first called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test.

The current SAT Reasoning Test, introduced in 2005, takes 3 hours and 45 minutes to finish, and costs US$51 (US$91 International), excluding late fees. Possible scores on the SAT range from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800-point sections – Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing. However, the SAT does not mirror high school curriculum. Some SAT experts assert that the SAT does not measure raw math or verbal abilities and that the SAT is primarily only a measure of how well one takes the SAT. Taking the SAT or its competitor, the ACT, is required for freshman entry to many, but not all, universities in the United States.
