    SAT’s = Standard Assessment Tests why does the Radio 4 newsreader insist on saying SAT’s Tests this morning, would he say Standard Assessment Tests Tests.
    Maybe I’m just grumpy because I’ve been at work all night. 👿

    MOT = Motor Ordinance Test, so you don’t need to add the ‘Test’ bit

    Motor Ordinance Test

    To make sure all the rocket launchers and artillery pieces on your car are in full working order?

    You’re being pedantic while misusing an apostrophe?

    OK, I was wrong 😳

    Ordinance – A statute or regulation

    nothing to do with artillery, so it does work.

    Now you’re misusing a hyphen.

    I heard that SAT didnt stand for Standard Assessment Test any more because it wasnt a standard assessment, so was just SAT now. So SAT Tests would be accurate?

    It never did. The “S” stands for “Scholastic” (in the American ones at least; in the UK it’s a slang term so could mean whatever you want it to).
