Why take SAT? You should take SAT. Importance of SAT Exam

The SAT is one of two admissions tests (the ACT being the other), often required for admission to US universities.
The SAT is a standardized test required by many US colleges and universities as part of their admission process. The score a student gets on the SAT is often used as a predictor of how a student is likely to perform in college-level studies.
In its present form it consists of two different examinations:
 The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly SAT I).
The SAT Subject Tests (formerly SAT II)
Some institutions require only one of these tests, some require both.
The SAT Reasoning Test is a three hour and forty-five minute test comprised of three sections: Critical Reading, Math, and Writing.
The test is designed to measure critical thinking and analytical skills. It is offered several times per year at numerous sites throughout the UK
Most US universities will not specify which Subject Tests you should take. Clear Perceptionsrecommends students to take the Subject Tests they are likely to do well on. Generally, students take subjects that correspond to their A-levels or GCSEs.
There are three sections on the SAT, and each one ranges from 200-800 points. The overall SAT score range is from 600 to 2400, with 2400 being the highest possible score.
After you take your SAT, your scores will be available to view online within 17-20 days depending on the test date.
Standardized tests are important when applying to American colleges and universities, but do not play the same decisive role in admission as they do in India.
Admissions to American institutions of higher education are not based solely on a student’s performance on a single set of exams. The results of several standardized tests — the ACT or SAT, and SAT subject tests — are only a part of the evaluation of all students applying to American colleges, one element in a wide array of requirements, including letters of recommendation, essays, school reports and extracurricular activities.
Students should sit for the full gamut of tests — taking either the SAT or ACT and subject tests — to have maximum options available when applying.
