The SAT is a college admissions test that assesses the skills you’re learning in school: reading, writing and math. Your knowledge and skills in these subjects are important for success in college and throughout your life. Most students take a college admissions test during their junior or senior year of high school. Colleges and universities generally use such a test to make admission decisions.
