Students can also take the SAT on their own to try to improve their score. Students can register for the SAT at sat.org/register.
PURPOSE OF THE SAT
Admissions to colleges is becoming more and more competative and getting a good score on the SAT helps students to get into the schools they want.
Preparing for the SAT by learning both content and test taking strategies helps you to get your best possible score.
If you are planning to go to a community college or another college for the first year or two and then transferring to a 4 year college THEY WILL LOOK AT YOUR SAT SCORES in the same way they would as if you were just applying as a freshman!
College Scholarships and aid
Many college scholarships and aid are awarded for academic excellence are simply not available to a student unless he or she reaches a specific SAT score. Other factors like GPA, extra curriculars, etc might be considered as well but most look at the SAT scores.
For the most part the higher your SAT score the more money you are potentially able to get to help pay for college.
For Juniors the SAT will serve as their state test but is also the standardized test used for most colleges and scholarships.
In April for Juniors the test is free so you want to be prepared to do well so you do not need to pay to retake it on your own.
