With 2017 coming to an end, I want to acquaint everybody with some important SAT dates to remember for the upcoming year.
What is the SAT?
The SAT is a standardized test widely used to administer college admission. Your score is to allude your competence in school by measuring your knowledge in key subjects like English (Evidence-Based Reading) and Math with an optional essay portion. In easier terms, it is a college entrance exam. The goal is to provide colleges accurate data of the student’s knowledge using something other than your high school GPA. The weight of your SAT score is heavily based in your admission process for it is a common ground between all applicants.
