A test most people take as a high school student. Some people flame about it, mostly on But that's because they are either dumb, perfectionists, or dissatisfied with the fact that the world CAN go on without themselves or you or me (they have just realized that they are insignificant, just as significant as Earth is in the universe). Another reason to dislike it is that you hate the bias and bureaucracy of the education system in the United States, which I personally do. But that's just hating a player in the game of racist affirmative-action and workaholism.

Others simply adore it, because it either gives them self-worth, gets them into college, gets them well-deserved scholarship money, or actually challenges the mind, unlike high school work. You actually have to be smart or study to do well on it.

There is, of course, a third category, that may or may not be a minority, because, frankly, they don't care about it. They do it or don't do it and don't stress about it. They realize that though it does have a significant impact on your future if you're going to a college, they realize that they can handle it. I'm one of them.
NOTE: All scores are based out of 1600 for these samples.

Group 1
-No. It's not a stupid test. You're just stupid (unless you have a learning disability).

Rock is to scissors as paper is to ...
-No. You're an idiot. It's rock, you moron. Any idiot can get those right. They're logical.

OMG! I GOT A 1590 on that STUPID SAT. I HATE IT!
-Calm down. Breathe in, breathe out. You're ok. You can still get into a school that's distinguishing factor is its name.

My child got a 1170 on your stupid SAT. I want a recount!
-Face it. Your kid got that score. He/She is not an 1337 genius. Get over it.

Group 2
OMG! You only got a 1490 on the SAT? You're dumb!
-No. Maybe I just don't care. Or maybe you have a supremacy disorder because you're "gifted."

I loved the SATs. It actually tests intelligence rather than how hard you can work or how fast you can copy someone else's homework.
-Not a bad person. Unless you hate the SATs.

I'm glad I took the SATs so I could get a full ride to college!
-See above

Group 3
I don't really care. I've got better things to do than study for a test of intelligence or college aptitude.
-That's cool. If you do as well as you hoped.

I don't care. I know I'll do well enough for college. I played 2 hours of Halo 2 before taking it and I never studied for it. I got a 1300.
-Yep. That's me.

Stupidity Assesment Test. A test given in high school that judges your worth as a human being. the lower the score, the more expendable you are to the government.

Stands for Scholastic Assessment Test. This test is required by most colleges, though some will accept the ACT instead. The SAT has come under much controversy, especially because so much weight is put on how well a student does on a single test. Many opponents of the exam have said that many students are creative, but cannot perform well on standardized tests. Also, it is now popularly believed that wealthy students can "buy" their SAT score. Many hire the best programs and tutors that money can afford to get high scores. As a result, there is a notable difference between races and social classes in their SAT scores.

However, the SAT was revised as of 2005. Previously, the Math and Verbal SAT were on a scale of 800 (the scale starts at 200) separately, people often stated their score out of 1600, adding together both scores. The new SAT has many changes. Firstly, it has three catagories: Math, Critical Reading, and Writing, and therefore ones' total score would be out of 2400 rather than 1600. Also, the infamous analogies, a section that was particularly dreaded by high school juniors and seniors, have been removed. Finally, components of the SAT II: Writing have been combined, including the 25 minute essay. This section has been criticized as well, especially because only two graders read it once (Each grades on a scale of 0-6, and those two numbers are added together).

The SAT is resented by many students and in recent years the ACT has become more popular, because of its more straight-forward testing approach. However, at the moment the SAT is still needed to apply to many colleges.
The SAT is a test that many people feel to be an unfair way to judge the worth of a student.

test written solely for the purpose of making jr's and sr's in highschool miserable. has caused an entire industry focused around preparation (economic multiplier, perhaps?).

all the good colleges want to see perfect 1600s. because they suck. whoever invented the sat should be drowned in his/her own viscous slime.
holy shit i have to do good on the sat or im fucked because i'm a typical teenager who needs not know all sorts of fancy words.
