Each section of the SAT receives a grade between 200 and 800, and the final score is arrived at by adding the scores of the three sections together. It takes three hours and 45 minutes to complete all three sections of the SAT.

The SAT is administered seven times per year. Students often take the SAT two or three times in an effort to achieve the highest scores possible, thereby increasing their chances of admission to the colleges of their choice.
