There are three SAT sections: Math, Critical Reading and Writing. The Writing section requires test takers to complete an essay that is factored into the final score. Start to finish, the test will take you three hours and 45 minutes. Each section is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale, making the “perfect” score 2400.
The SAT is NOT given to students at CCA

The SAT test provides a different format so students that did not score as high on the ACT as they expected will sometimes take the SAT to see if they score better. Some universities will accept an SAT and use their ACT conversion-scale as the admission criteria.

What is the difference between the ACT and SAT test formats?
At CCA, only a few students each year take the SAT. It provides a different format so students that believe they did not score as high on the ACT as they expected will sometimes take the SAT to see if they score better. Most universities accept the ACT; however, some schools outside of Tennessee may request SAT scores.
