 The SAT is a standardized test administered by the College Board, widely used for college and university admissions in the US. The SAT measures literacy and writing skills that are needed for academic success in college. It also measures your abilities in Math.  Many colleges and universities in the US require the SAT for admission. Most merit-based scholarships also require the SAT. The SAT is typically taken by high school juniors (2nd Lyceum/IB1) and seniors (3rd Lyceum/IB2). Score reports are sent directly from the College Board to the student’s preferred colleges and universities. Sncie Covid-19 most colleges have a test optional policy and students that don't submit SAT tests are not penalized. If you are a strong test taker your SAT scores can support the GPA grades you submit and show your competency in the two areas tested, English and Math.

The PSAT is a preliminary version of the SAT. Not only does the PSAT provide a risk-free opportunity to become familiar with standardized testing, but it also provides a basis for developing a customized and personalized SAT study plan critical for ensuring success on the SAT. For US citizens, a high score on the PSAT can also open the door to National Merit Scholarships and other awards. The PSAT is much more than a practice test. You should take the PSAT in October of your sophomore year in high school (1st Lykeion). You should feed the results into your online College Board / Khan Academy account and receive your personalized SAT study plan (see infographic below).
