SAT

The Scholastic Aptitude Test has existed for years and is one of the most important factors in determining your acceptance to a good college.  Your SAT score along with your grades from 9th-11th grade are crucial for college acceptance.

The PSAT (pre-SAT) is a preparatory exam for all 11th grade students to determine how they might perform on the SAT and provide familiarity with the SAT.

The College Board website offers plenty of excellent information and resources regarding the PSAT/SAT.

Understanding Your Scores:
SAT scores are reported on a scale from 200-800, with additional subscores reported for the essay (ranging from 2-12) and for multiple-choice writing questions (on a 20-80 scale). Your scores tell college admissions staff how you did compared with other students who took the test. For example, if you scored close to the mean or average — about 500 on SAT critical reading and 500 on SAT mathematics — admissions staff would know that you scored as well as about half of the students who took the test nationally.
