What 'SAT'?

So, what is an 'SAT'? We take a look at what this test is and what it means for International students.

The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The SAT is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test created and administered by the College Board. As an International you are not required to complete the essay portion of the exam.

The purpose of the SAT is to measure a student's readiness for college in the USA, and provide colleges with universal score that can be used to compare all applicants. College admissions officers will review standardised test scores along with your high school grades, the qualifications you took in high school like GCSE's or BTEC's.

How important SAT scores are in the college application process varies from school to school as each institution will have different requirements for their future students, however as an International student SAT's can be a great way to earn additional scholarship. Certain college's will award Academic scholarship based on SAT scores, so you could potentially earn yourself extra money towards your tuition costs. As a British student, the SAT exam is comparable to GCSE level English and Maths.

As a Student-Athlete at college in the USA, it is important that you are able to manage both your studies and sporting commitments. The Academic side begins with your SAT test, and can give you a crucial boost before you even get to the states; as such we ensure all our player's are totally prepared for the exam with access to revision materials and a specific SAT tutor.
