What is SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Testing):
SAT is an important test which is required for university admission in most universities. The exam duration is three hours and it consists of three tests: (1) the Reading Test, (2) the Writing and Language Test, and (3) the Math Test.
ComponentTime Allotted (minutes)Number of Questions/Tasks
Writing and Language35 minutes44
Most of the questions are multiple choice, though some of the math questions ask you to write in the answer rather than select it.
Unlike other exams, there’s no penalty for guessing, so if you’re not sure of the answer, it’s better to guess than leave the response blank.
The SAT Reading Test:
The five passages on the Reading Test include four standalone passages and one pair of passages that you read together. The standalone passages and the paired set are each 500–750 words.
The questions on the reading test fall into three broad categories:
- How the Author Uses Evidence
- Understanding Words in Context
- Analysis in History/Social Studies and in Science
The SAT Writing and Language Test
The Writing and Language test is a multiple-choice test in which you read passages and find and fix mistakes and weaknesses.
This part of the SAT is 35 minutes long, includes 4 passages, and contains 44 multiple-choice questions
