The SAT is a college admission test that requires students to apply academic knowledge in the areas of reading, writing and math. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making admission decisions. High school grades are also very important. In fact, the combination of high school grades and SAT scores is the best predictor of a student's academic success in college.
