SAT consists of three major sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Each section receives a score on the scale of 200–800. All scores are multiples of 10. Total scores are calculated by adding up scores of the three sections. Each major section is divided into three parts. There are 10 sub-sections, including an additional 25-minute experimental or "equating" section that may be in any of the three major sections. The experimental section is used to normalize questions for future administrations of the SAT and does not count toward the final score. The test contains 3 hours and 45 minutes of actual timed sections,although most administrations, including orientation, distribution of materials, completion of biographical sections, and eleven minutes of timed breaks, run about four and a half hours long. The questions range from easy, medium, and hard depending on the scoring from the experimental sections. Easier questions typically appear closer to the beginning of the section while harder questions are towards the end in certain sections.
This is not true for every section but it is the rule of thumb mainly for math and sentence completions and vocabulary.
What does the SAT test?
The SAT tests the skills you're learning in school: reading, writing and math. Your strength in these
subjects is important for success in college and throughout your life.
• The reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions.
• The writing section includes a short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying
errors and improving grammar and usage.
• The math section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics
How important is the SAT in college admission?
The SAT is just one factor among many that colleges use to get to know you better. It's part of
a comprehensive admission process that also takes into account your high school academics,
extracurricular activities, recommendations, personal essay and other factors.
Every college and university uses a different combination of criteria for admission. Research the
schools you're interested in using College Search to understand their unique admission policies.
How is the SAT related to the College Board?
The College Board is a not-for-profit education organization dedicated to helping students discover
their path to higher education. Our programs strive to provide every student with an opportunity to
go to college and the tools to succeed there.
The SAT is one of the College Board's best-known programs. In keeping with the College Board's
mission, the SAT provides an equal opportunity for all students to show what they've learned in
school and how they apply that knowledge. This provides students an opportunity to demonstrate
their problem solving and critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in college.
How is the SAT scored?
Each section of your SAT (critical reading, mathematics and writing) will be scored on a 200- to
800-point scale, for a possible total of 2400. You'll also get two "subscores" on the writing section: a
multiple-choice score from 20 to 80, and an essay score from 2 to 12.
But how do you get these scores?
Two steps happen before you see a final score.
First, we figure out your raw score by:
• Adding points for correct answers.
• Subtracting a fraction of a point for wrong answers.
Remember: Questions that you skipped don't count either for or against your score, and points aren't
taken away for wrong answers on the math questions where you needed to enter the answer into a
Then we take your raw score and turn it into a scaled score. This is where the score of 200–800
points comes from, and it is done through a statistical process called "equating." This process makes
it possible to compare your score with the scores of other students who took alternative versions of
the test, and to your own scores on previous tests.

How much time will I have to take the SAT?
The SAT is made up of 10 sections:
• A 25-minute essay
• Six 25-minute sections (mathematics, critical reading and writing)
• Two 20-minute sections (mathematics, critical reading and writing)
• A 10-minute multiple-choice writing section
Total test time: 3 hours and 45 minutes
You'll also get three short breaks during the testing, so don't forget to bring a snack!

When should I take the SAT?
Most students take the SAT during the spring of their junior year of high school. Many students
choose to take the SAT a second time in the fall of their senior year after becoming familiar with the
test day experience.
How many times should I take the SAT?
Most students take the SAT once or twice. We don't recommend taking it more than twice because
there's no evidence that taking the SAT multiple times significantly changes your score.
How are the exam questions created?
Every SAT question goes through a very careful review process before making it into your exam
booklet. Each question that you see has been:
• Reviewed by a team of experts, including math and English teachers, to make sure that it
reflects what most college-bound students are learning in school.
• Thoroughly tested to make sure that it is fair for students of all backgrounds and ethnicities.
Questions that don't make it through these steps will never show up on an actual exam.
What is the "unscored" section?
Each SAT exam includes an extra 25-minute critical reading, mathematics or writing multiple-choice
section that doesn't count toward your score.
This section is where we try out new questions to make sure that future exams are fair for students
from different backgrounds. It also helps us make sure that scores from students taking future exams
can be compared to scores from students who took earlier versions of the test.
