SAT Training

  • What is SAT and why is it important??

    Created by The College Board, the SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The idea is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. However, it is just one of the factors in the admissions decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school. The SAT is offered nationally every year in October, November, December, January, March, May and June.

    Test-takers will get three separate scores, one for the Quantitative (the math), one for the Verbal, and one for the Analytic (the essays). Math and Verbal scores will range between 130 and 170 in one point increments. Analytic scores range between 0 and 6 in half point increments.

Test Taking Strategies

.
  • All questions count the same, so answer the easy questions first. The easier questions are usually at the beginning of the section, and the harder ones are at the end. The exception is in the passage-based reading questions, which are ordered according to the logic and organization of each passage.
  • Make educated guesses. You have a better chance of choosing the right answer if you can rule out one or more answer choices for multiple-choice questions.
  • Skip questions that you really can’t answer. No points are deducted if an answer is left blank.
  • Limit your time on any one question. All questions are worth the same number of points. If you need a lot of time to answer a question, go on to the next one. Later, you may have time to return to the question you skipped.
  • Keep track of time. Occasionally check your progress so that you know where you are and how much time is left.
  • Use your test booklet as scratch paper.
  • In your test booklet, mark the questions that you skipped and to which you want to return.
  • Check your answer sheet to make sure you are placing your answers correctly
