With the rise in competition, every individual aspires to achieve the best as soon as they can. SAT is a test that facilitates the students to seek admission into Undergraduate courses in Universities in US and other western countries. Created by the College Board, a private non-profit organization, it is administered by ETS (educational testing service) another private not for profit organization.
It consists of 4 sections namely:
This section judges a student’s ability to employ his reasoning and logical abilities to solve mathematical problems, analyzing data in the form of graphs. The questions consist of the basic concept covered in the school years for example arithmetic, probability, mean median and mode, ratios etc.
SAT Employs two different kinds of questions i.e. multiple choice questions (MCQ’S) and Grid ins.
With the latest changes incorporated in the revised SAT, there are no negative points for wrong answers! (That’s good news, isn’t it?)
Evidence – Based Reading Section
This measures the student’s ability to scrutinize and critically evaluate a text. This tests the students’ abilities to go beyond the prescribed and exercise their brain’s analytical powers. This section comprises of 5 Reading comprehension passages – 2 Science Passages, 2 Social Science Passages, and 1 Passage concerning U.S. or World Literature. Each passage is accompanied by 10-11 questions each. Thus, a student gets 65 minutes to solve 50 to 55 questions, each with 4 options provided. (This section doesn’t award negative points for wrong answers either; so, Yay!)
Writing and Language Section
This section primarily comprises of 44 questions in total that are MCQ type and are needed to be solved within 35 minutes. This section is designed so as to test a student for his abilities of being an editor and improve passages that were written especially for the test — and that include deliberate errors. This section is merged with the Evidence-Based Reading section in the paper and together both these sections account to a score of 800 maximum.
Optional Essay Section
The new revised SAT does not include the essay section as a compulsory one; rather, the students are provided with an option to take the essay if the score is needed by the university they are applying to. The essay is not a simple account of analysis on a short passage anymore. A full-fledged reading comprehension is provided to a student that he/she has to read, analyze and write a well-structured response for. The essay section is of 50 minutes now.
