dear me....thats dire..
thats not for UK sat's tests is it? cos they dont do them at 16, its like at 11 and 14 in the UK i think, where are they for?

i2c, the SAT is in the US. Back when I went to school, they where used for college admission.

i2c - you know the way in the UK you sit your 11+ at 11 which decides if you get into a decent secondary school (which effects whether or no you get into Uni) and then you do your GCSE's at 16 (which determines wether or not you can stay on at school and then get into Uni) and now you do your AS-Levels at 17 (which is like a backup to the GCSE's just to be really sure that you should still be at school and can continue on to Uni) and then at 18 you take your A-Levels (which finally decide if you can get into Uni)
So really in the UK you are preparing and working towards Uni form the age of 9 (when you start studying for 11+) and at any stage durring the next 9 or 10 yrs you mess up well then you dont get to go
Where as in the US they take some general knowledge test - and then the Uni's request copies of the parents bank account statements - if their account statements pass their tests the pupil gets in....oh and I think they might glance at the SAT score at some stage as well
/me takes tongue out of cheek and walks away whistling
