SAT is an aptitude test, assessing the student’s intelligence and reasoning ability. The SAT is claimed, distributed, and created by the College Board, a non-benefit association in the United States. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. A good SAT score will help you to get admission in your choice of colleges and universities and you will be considered as a smart learner. However, SAT is not the only parameter to judge your academic excellence; there are obviously many other things that are considered before admission. Over three million global students take SAT every year. The SAT is conducted seven times a year in the United States and six times per year internationally.
The national SAT average 2017 ranges between 1050 and 1100. A good SAT score can make you earn plenty of scholarships. Of course, the higher your score, the more chances of grabbing scholarships will be. Other factors that are also necessary with the SAT scores are your GPA, extra-curricular certificates and demographics.
