Get to Know the SAT

Exam Pattern

The SAT is a standardized test
that evaluates verbal and mathematical ability in college applicants. Students
usually take the test in their junior and/or senior year of high school.The
2016 version includes two required sections (Evidence-Based Reading and
Writing, and Math), along with an optional Essay section. One of the most
important new features of the 2016 SAT is expanded scoring. Students receive
composite scores of 400 to 1600, built from the Evidence-Based Reading and
Writing and Math section scores of 200 to 800. Test-takers are also given
scores for individual tests within the sections in addition to sub-scores on
specific verbal and mathematical skills. Cross-test scores reflect student
performance on certain analytical abilities that are assessed in both required
sections. Essays are scored separately by two independent readers, and these
essay scores do not affect any other scoring area.

Exam Pattern

Both sections, EBRW and Math, are scored on a range of 200-800.  Even though optional, SAT essay score is required by a number of colleges during the application process. The score range for SAT Essay section is 2 to 8. 

  • Both sections of EBRW questions are multiple-choice questions
  • Math is divided into two sets of questions – one to be attempted without using a calculator and one with a calculator
  • Most of the Mathematics questions are MCQs; some questions are grid-ins i.e. students must solve and fill in the answer on the bubble sheet
  • The exam is 3 hours long. SAT with Essay is 3 hours and 50 minutes long.
  • There is a time limit of 100 minutes to attempt EBRW and 80 minutes for Math.

  • Document or speech related to the Constitution and founding of the US
  • A selection about economics, psychology, sociology, etc.

Each passage is followed by 10-11 multiple-choice questions with four answer choices. The questions can be broadly classified into the following types:

  • Main idea or central theme of the passage
  • Explanation or inference of a phrase used in the passage

You are given 50 minutes to read a 650-750 words-long passage and then write an analysis about how the author builds his or her argument. This type of question is a standard feature of the SAT essay. The passage, of course, varies each time. Keep in mind that you are required to analyse the author’s arguments and to identify the underlying premises and assumptions. So, refrain from stating your opinion. Take a look at the SAT Essay Guide to know more.
