The SAT is one of the two main standardized tests that high school students take before applying to college, alongside the ACT. The SAT tests students in math, writing and critical reading skills. The writing test is scored separately and the math and critical reading scores are combined for a total composite SAT score. On your Scholarships.com profile you’ll be able to enter your math and critical reading scores separately.
Working to obtain a high SAT score won't just help you when applying to colleges – it can also help you win scholarships. Many colleges and universities offer merit-based scholarships dependent on your SAT score. Studying hard for the SAT can really pay off!
