The Scholastic Aptitude Test is the main standardized test used by colleges to determine the quality of applicants in The United States, covering reading, writing, and math. Generally, taking the SAT is considered a culminating moment in a teen's education and is the subject of much stress and studying. Its lesser known competitor is the ACT.
In 2005 the test was heavily revamped, most notably changing from a base-1600 score to a base-2400 score. Older programs will reference the old scoring system.
Britain also has two exams called SATs, but they're pronounced as words and taken before GCSEs.
