SAT / SATII
SAT(Scholastic Aptitude Test)
The SAT is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the US, just like the National Exam (수능) in Korea. It is largely divided into two types.
- This test is composed of Evidence-based Reading and Writing, Math, and an Essay.
(Since 2016, the essay has become optional.)
- Score: Evidence-based reading and writing 800 points, Math 800 points , A total of 1600 points. The essay score ranges from 6-24.
- SAT preparation: The SAT is all about fully understanding sentences. Of course, having vocabulary knowledge is important, but students should not stop at memorizing the surface meaning of each word. Students need to know the word in context—its synonyms, antonyms, and its usage in a sentence.
Also, because students cannot return to the previous section when the section is over, students need to hone their concentration and speed.
The SAT II is a subject test with 20 subjects. You can choose subjects related to your future major. The SAT subject exams are taken on the same day the SAT is taken, so you should make sure that the test times do not overlap. The test is out of 800 points, and you are given an hour to complete the test.
- Registration: In Korea, you can only register by mail or on the internet
- Note: There are universities that don’t require the SAT subject exams, but some require 2-3 subjects, so make sure you’re aware of what each university requires.
You can take up to 3 SAT II tests in a day. (Foreign language SAT II tests with listening sections can be taken only once a day)
*Cancelling scores: You cannot selectively cancel your scores, and the scores for all the tests taken that day will be cancelled.
- For both tests, the examination site closes at 8 am, and once the site is closed, you cannot enter, so make sure to be punctual. -
