What is SAT?

The Scholastic Assessment Test i.e. the SAT is an entrance test used by colleges and universities to determine the student’s eligibility for their undergraduate programs. It is an MCQ-based test that determines your skills across three areas: Evidence-based Reading and Writing, and Mathematics. The test is now available in not just pen and paper based structure, but also an online version. There is no passing or failing this test, as every university has different requirements for its students. The maximum score one can attain on this test is 1600. College Board, an American organisation, conducts these tests several times throughout the year. Your test score has validity for up to 5 years. It is one of the prerequisites for your application to many universities along with the entrance test, interview, past academic records, etc. More than 4000 universities across the globe accept SAT scores for application. In India, approximately 35 universities accept SAT scores. As you can see the wide acceptance of this test and thus consequently its importance.

SAT Scoring

Both the sections; Math and Reading & Writing contribute equally to the 1600 mark examination.

The score is calculated on the basis of the number of questions you have answered. Sometimes you will need to answer all questions to achieve a full 800. Sometimes, you can let go of one question and still receive full marks.

First, you calculate your raw score depending on the number of questions you answered. Say for eg. You answered 48 questions out of 58 in the Math section, your projected score will be 680. You can use data available online to check for your projected score with respect to your raw score (number of questions you answered.)

The maximum raw score you can achieve on the reading test is 52 and on the writing test is 44. On the math test, you can get a maximum raw score of 58. Through this you receive a final score and adding the scores of both sections gives you a composite score out of 1600.

Any score above 1300 can get you into most universities. However, if you are targeting some of the world’s finest you must aim for nothing less than 1400/1600.
