What is SAT Exam?


SAT Exam in Nepal is one of the most popular and globally accepted assessment tests for students aspiring to pursue undergraduate courses abroad. Since its inception, the SAT Exam has been administered and conducted by the College Board. Earlier, the SAT Exam was known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test, which was later changed to the Scholastic Assessment Test to assess and evaluate the verbal, written, and mathematical skills of students/ candidates aspiring to begin their study abroad journey. The countries such as the USA, UK and Canada give weightage to the SAT Score, and it is one of the requirements for enrolling in universities or higher education institutions.

Originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, it was later called the Scholastic Assessment Test, then the SAT I: Reasoning Test, then the SAT Reasoning Test, now simply the SAT.

 

The SAT measures how well test-takers can analyze and solve problems which are skills that are typically learned while in school and will be needed in college. It serves as an entrance test for students aspiring to admit for undergraduate courses abroad, especially in the US and Canada colleges and universities. It is a written paper-pencil test and helps evaluate the language and mathematical reasoning skills of the applicants. The universities you apply to, take into consideration your SAT scores in admission decisions and it has a significant role in scholarship decisions.

Previously, to prove their in-depth understanding of specific subjects, students could take SAT Subject Tests, in addition to the SAT. 

However, the SAT Subject Tests have been discontinued from 2021.
