The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is an standardised exam used primarily by American Universities to assess students during the admissions process. The exam is 3.5 hours and tests reading, writing, and mathematics. Further subject tests (called SAT II), including further maths, can be sat in addition to the primary SAT. The format of the exam is changing from June, 2016. The attached review was written for tests taken before June 2016.
