SAT®– FAQ

The Writing section tests an individual’s ability to think critically in writing and to identify and correct grammatical errors.  The time allocation for this section is 35 minutes.

  • All questions are multiple choice and based on passages.
  • Some passages are accompanied by informational graphics, such as tables, graphs, and charts — but no math is required.
  • Prior topic knowledge is never tested.
  • The Writing and Language Test is part of the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section.

The Essay is now optional for the New SAT® and is administered after the regular test. Depending on the college or university you wish to attend the essay may be required, suggested or optional. Please consult the latest requirements from the institution. The time for the essay is 50 minutes.

Final scores range from 400-1600. Please refer below for the detail of the scale:

  • Scale ranging from 200 to 800 for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing;
  • 200 to 800 for Math;
  • 2 to 8 on each of three dimensions for Essay (optional)
  • Essay results are reported separately

final score is around 500. Individuals should compare their results to the mean (average) score of their graduating class to get a better idea of how well they have done.
SAT® results are usually available within approximately three weeks of the test date and can be found at the College board website.

Online Registration materials, along with a list of test centers and available test dates, can be found on the College Board website.

It is also possible to register by mail, or paper registration. Please consult the College Board SAT® website for the most current information.

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT®) was established in 1926 as a means of assessing an individual’s ability to solve mathematical and verbal problems, as well as their ability to write critically and effectively.  The latest version of  the SAT® was released in January of 2016.  The SAT® is one of two reasoning tests that are required for admission to many colleges and universities in the United States (though widely recognized internationally).

SAT® scores are used to supplement an individual’s junior or senior high school GPA (Grade Point Average) on college applications. The exact weight given to the SAT® varies.  Many universities require it for incoming freshman, and a few do not require it at all. To avoid any confusion, individuals should contact each college or university to which they are applying regarding specific admission policies and the acceptence of the SAT® or any other testing requirements.

Generally, students take the SAT® during the spring term of their junior year and again in the fall of their senior year. The  SAT®three sections, which test critical reading, writing, and mathematical abilities, are designed to provide a fair comparison between students from different backgrounds and ethnicities. Combined with the GPA, the SAT® score provides an excellent indicator of an individual’s ability to succeed at the undergraduate level.

The SAT® is divided into three sections. The test takes around three hours to complete and extra 50 minutes if you do the optional essay. However, when breaks are factored in, individuals can expect a total running time of four and a half hours. As a rule of thumb, the questions get more difficult as the test progresses.

Usually, there is an extra experimental subsection in the test which may fall under any of the main sections. The experimental subsection is not scored in your final test results and is not labelled. Individuals are strongly encouraged to answer all questions to the best of their abilities because of this.

The Critical Reading section tests an individual’s reading comprehension skills.  The time limit for this section is 65 minutes.  All subsections contain sentence completion questions, and the subsections involve reading passages on a wide variety of subjects about which one must answer questions. Some subsections require comparisons between related passages.
The Quantitative section tests an individual’s mathematical ability. The quantitative section is timed at 80 minutes.

Most math questions will be multiple choice, but some — called grid-ins — ask you to come up with the answer rather than select the answer.

The Math Test is divided into two portions:

  • Math Test – Calculator and
  • Math Test – No Calculator

Some parts of the test include several questions about a single scenario.

The Math Test will focus in depth on the three areas of math that play the biggest role in a wide range of college majors and careers:

  • Algebra which focuses on the mastery of linear equations and systems.
  • Problem Solving and Data Analysis which is about being quantitatively literate.
  • Advanced Math which features questions that require the manipulation of complex equations.
  • Geometry and trigonometry most relevant to college and career readiness.
