The SAT is a 3-hour-and-45-minute test that measures the critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills that students need to do college-level work. Nearly every college in America accepts the SAT as a part of its admissions process. That's why more than two million students take the SAT every year. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year in high school.
