It is a standardized test, designed to measure critical thinking, reading and analytical skills and writing skills through three sections- math, critical reading writing and language and Essay (optional).The SAT tests a student's capability and their likelihood to succeed in a course which and is one of the several factors that many universities and colleges consider when making their admission decisions alongside high school grades.

THE NEW SAT Scoring Methodology
Two sections of SAT (Mathematics and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing) are scored on a scale ranging from 200-800 points giving a possible total of 1600. Sub scores and insight scores are also reported along with an optional essay (scored separately).
Questions that a student does not answer do not count either for or against their score. No negative marking for wrong answers on the math questions where the answers have to be entered into a grid. The raw score for each section is then converted into a scaled score. This is where the score of 200–800 points comes from, which is done through a statistical process called 'equating'.
To remember when taking the New SAT:
Unlike the old SAT there is no negative marking or wrong-answer penalty and too much time must not be spent on answering specific questions, especially, in the Critical Reading section. The critical reading section now does not asks for sentence completion. There are only 4 answer choices per question in the New SAT test format.SAT is available in print and digitally.
