The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a college admission test that American high school students take in order to apply to colleges in the United States.
The total possible score of SAT is 1600, 800 from critical reading, and 800 from math, and an optional essay section scored out of 24 which was revised to the SAT I since 2016.
The optional essay section consists of a long reading passage that must be analyzed in the writing to show how the author achieved the writing purpose. Note that it does not ask for the students' opinion or whether the students agree or disagree.
The SAT I is also an official English language proficiency test which is more advanced than TOEFL, so it is used not just for the US college admission but also as the international admission test of Ewha Womans University or Yonsei University in Korea, and as admission test and interview material for Korean Minjok Leadership Academy and other foreign language high schools.

The test score will be notified individually after about 3 weeks.
The SAT I score is permanently stored and directly reported to the college of the student's choice, and maximum of 6 scores will be sent when reporting to the college. To report the SAT score to the college of your choice, you may use the website, phone, mail, etc., which are similar to test registration. You can send your SAT score to up to 4 colleges for free, and add 4 additional colleges with a fee of $9 for each additional college. If you are not really confident about the score, do not write the code number when registering for the SAT. You can first check your score afterward, then find the college code number you want to write in the additional score report before sending the report
The additional score report request is attached to the score report you will receive, so make sure you store the request form in a secure place.
The student may have to wait at least 4-5 weeks to receive the score in Korea, so the student can use the internet account to find out his or her SAT score about 15 days after the test.
Most prestigious colleges require SAT II scores.
Many students now select 2 SAT subject tests that meet their academic interests. But it is usually better to take 3 SAT II subject tests or more for the exceptionally recognized colleges, including Harvard, Also the subjects other than Math IIC or Math IC are usually difficult ones and it's not easy to get high scores in them. One way to get high scores in such subjects is to build a solid foundation and study thoroughly about the subject from the beginning.
It is a trend among the elite high school students in Korea to take the AP tests competitively; you may not want to fall behind while everybody else is taking the AP tests, so it will be a good strategy to study for one subject and take both the SAT II and AP tests.
