SATs

What Are The SATs

SATs is a standard entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The SAT is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test created and administered by the College Board.

The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. College admissions officers will review standardized test scores alongside your high school / secondary school grades, the classes you took in high school / secondary school & letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities and sometimes personal essays. 

Our relationship with colleges and universities alongside your football skills should be enough to secure a soccer scholarship to the states.

The SAT is split into two sections, however, some colleges require a third section which is an Essay Section

1. Evidence- Based Reading & Writing

2. Math
This exam is 3 hours long for the main two sections, however if your college requires an essay section you will receive an extra 50 minutes and the exam will be 3 hours 50 minutes in total.

Example Math Question: 

Q: A researcher wanted to know if there is an association between exercise and sleep for the population of 16-year-olds in the United States. She obtained survey responses from a random sample of 2000 United States 16-year-olds and found convincing evidence of a positive association between exercise and sleep. Which of the following conclusions is well supported by the data?

A. There is a positive association between exercise and sleep for 16-year-olds in the United States.

B. There is a positive association between exercise and sleep for 16-year-olds in the world.

C. Using exercise and sleep as defined by the study, an increase in sleep is caused by an increase of exercise for 16-year-olds in the United States.

D. Using exercise and sleep as defined by the study, an increase in sleep is caused by an increase of exercise for 16-year-olds in the world.

1Check Out Which Answer Is Correct / Incorrect & Why

Choice A is correct. A relationship in the data can only be generalized to the population that the sample was drawn from.

Choice B is not the correct answer. A relationship in the data can only be generalized to the population that the sample was drawn from. The sample was from high school students in the United States, not from high school students in the entire world.

Choice C is not the correct answer. Evidence for a cause-and-effect relationship can only be established when participants are randomly assigned to groups that receive different treatments.

Choice D is not the correct answer. Evidence for a cause-and-effect relationship can only be established when participants are randomly assigned to groups that receive different treatments. Also, a relationship in the data can only be generalized to the population that the sample was drawn from. The sample was from high school students in the United States, not from high school students in the entire world.
