What is the SAT?



  • SAT can be a major source of stress for many students trying to get top marks, hoping it will help them secure a spot at the university they wish to attend.


  • But while SAT scores play a role in college admissions, the extent of its importance also depends on the institution to which you’re applying.


  • Apart from a candidate’s academic competitiveness, some universities may also look into letters of recommendation from the school and extracurricular activities, which means SAT scores aren’t always the primary focus for some college admissions.


  • Despite this, students should still aim for the highest score possible when sitting for the SAT test.

  • According to The College Board, the average SAT score in 2018 was 1,068. A perfect SAT score is 1,600, while the minimum is 400. The average score for maths 531, while the average score for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) is 536.
