Scholastic Aptitude Test or the Scholastic Assessment Test is abbreviated as SAT or SAT-1. The test is conducted seven times every year in the month of January, March (or April alternating), May, June, October, November, and December at a worldwide level. It is a pen paper-based test that tests writing, critical reading,and mathematical knowledge. The SAT is designed to measure the thinking skills you’ll need to succeed in college and career.
The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Tests and Scholastic Assessment Tests) is a standardized test used by most US colleges and universities. By assessing your school grades and your SAT scores, you are considered as a potential student for college admissions by College Board ETS (Educational Testing Service).
The SAT has four tests, with the Essay being optional. The three tests that everyone will take are (1) the Reading Test, (2) the Writing and Language Test, and (3) the Math Test. The timing and number of questions are as follows: Reading – 65 mins for 52 questions, Writing and Language – 35 mins for 44 questions, Math – 80 mins for 58 questions, and Essay (optional) – 50 mins for 1 question. So, a total of 180 mins (230 mins with Essay) for 154 questions (155 with Essay).
The Writing Skill section tests not only your quickness for finding grammatical errors and comprehensively written sentences but also checks your ability to write a fine-draft wide-ranging and comprehensive essay on a particular topic, issue, or current affair. In this section, you are being tested on how effectively you express your opinion on a certain topic. Your score depends on how many correct answers you solve within a limited and definite period of time. Speed & accuracy both plays an equal role. The total score ranges from 400 to 1600. This score is the sum of the scores on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section (which includes the Reading and Writing and Language Tests) and the Math section. Of the 154 questions in the entire SAT (not counting the Essay), 96 questions are on the Reading and the Writing and Language Tests and 58 questions are on the Math Test. Section scores for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and for Math are reported on a scale from 200 to 800. The essay has three dimensions –reading, analysis, and writing. Two raters read each response and assign a score of 1 to 4 to each of the three dimensions. The two raters’ scores are combined to yield Reading, Analysis, and Writing scores, each on a scale of 2 to 8.
