SAT at ScoreGetter
Many of the colleges and universities in the United States consider the SAT Reasoning Test score for admission. The Test is managed by the College Board, while the questions are designed and prepared by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
The SAT has, over the years, undergone a lot of revisions and the current SAT includes three sections, each earning a maximum score of 800 and a minimum score of 200. The final SAT score that a test-taker gets is the sum of the scores of all three sections plus a percentile

The entire exam takes about four hours.
What is a good SAT score?
Since the scores from each section can range from 200 to 800, the best possible score is 2400. But that is quite difficult even for the best students to get. The average score for each section is about 500, which makes the average total score about 1500. Our assessment is that a score in excess of 2100, or an average section score of 700, may get you admission into most of the reputed colleges in the country.
How do you prepare for the SAT ?
The SAT tests students on math and verbal, especially basic grammar, reading and comprehension, writing, and mathematics.
Like other ETS exams, the SAT also expects students to have a good reading habit, knowledge of English grammar, and knowledge of math. Since the test is not computer-adaptive, students can answer easy questions first and then go on to the more difficult ones. A regular course schedule, an organized studying method, and a proper hold on subject specifics will ensure a good SAT score

Scholastic Aptitude Test – SAT
The SAT is a standardized test for most college admissions in the United States. The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a non-profit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service which still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student’s readiness for college. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times. It was first called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test.
Knowledge of basic grammar rules, ability to use logic, and a good reading habit will definitely ensure a good Verbal score.
What kinds of questions do you get in the GMAT Quantitative section?
The 37 questions in this section are in Problem Solving, 20 questions, and Data Sufficiency, 17 questions. The scoring scale is now from 130-170 in one-point increments
The current SAT Reasoning Test, introduced in 2005, takes three hours and forty-five minutes to finish, and costs $51 ($81 International), excluding late fees. Possible scores range from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800-point sections (Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing). Taking the SAT or its competitor, the ACT, is required for freshman entry to many, but not all, universities in the United States.
SAT consists of three major sections:
- Critical Reading
The Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) section of the SAT is made up of three scored sections: two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section, with varying types of questions, including sentence completions and questions about short and long reading passages.
Critical Reading sections normally begin with 5 to 8 sentence completion questions; the remainder of the questions are focused on the reading passages.
Sentence completions generally test the student’s vocabulary and understanding of sentence structure and organization by requiring the student to select one or two words that best complete a given sentence.
The bulk of the Critical Reading section is made up of questions regarding reading passages, in which students read short excerpts on social sciences, humanities, physical sciences, or personal narratives and answer questions based on the passage.
The Mathematics section of the SAT is widely known as the Quantitative Section or Calculation Section. The mathematics section consists of three scored sections. There are two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section, as follows:
One of the 25-minute sections is entirely multiple choices with 20 questions.
The other 25-minute section contains 8 multiple choice questions and 10 grid-in questions. For grid-in questions, test-takers write the answer inside a grid on the answer sheet. Unlike multiple choice questions, there is no penalty for incorrect answers on grid-in questions because the test-taker is not limited to a few possible choices.
The 20-minute section is all multiple choices, with 16 questions.
New topics include Algebra II and scatter plots. These recent changes have resulted in a shorter, more quantitative exam requiring higher level mathematics courses relative to the previous exam.
Four-function, scientific, and graphing calculators are permitted on the SAT math section; however, calculators are not permitted on either of the other sections. Calculators with QWERTY keyboards, cell phone calculators, portable computers, and personal organizers are not permitted.
With the recent changes to the content of the SAT math section, the need to save time while maintaining accuracy of calculations has led some to use calculator programs during the test. These programs allow students to complete problems faster than would normally be possible when making calculations manually.
The use of a graphing calculator is sometimes preferred, especially for geometry problems and exercises involving multiple calculations. According to research conducted by the College Board, performance on the math sections of the exam is associated with the extent of calculator use, with those using calculators on about a third to a half of the items averaging higher scores than those using calculators less frequently. The use of a graphing calculator in mathematics courses, and also becoming familiar with the calculator outside of the classroom, is known to have a positive effect on the performance of students using a graphing calculator during the exam.
The writing portion of the SAT, based on but not directly comparable to the old SAT II subject test in writing (which in turn was developed from the old Test of Standard Written English (TSWE)), includes multiple choice questions and a brief essay. The essay sub score contributes about 28% to the total writing score, with the multiple choice questions contributing 70%. This section was implemented in March 2005 following complaints from colleges about the lack of uniform examples of a student’s writing ability and critical thinking. The multiple choice questions include error identification questions, sentence improvement questions, and paragraph improvement questions. Error identification and sentence improvement questions test the student’s knowledge of grammar, presenting an awkward or grammatically incorrect sentence; in the error identification section, the student must locate the word producing the source of the error or indicate that the sentence has no error, while the sentence improvement section requires the student to select an acceptable fix to the awkward sentence. The paragraph improvement questions test the student’s understanding of logical organization of ideas, presenting a poorly written student essay and asking a series of questions as to what changes might be made to best improve it.
The essay section, which is always administered as the first section of the test, is 25 minutes long. For instance, test takers may be asked to expand on such ideas as their opinion on the value of work in human life or whether technological change also carries negative consequences to those who benefit from it. No particular essay structure is required, and the College Board accepts examples “taken from [the student’s] reading, studies, experience, or observations.” Two trained readers assign each essay a score between 1 and 6, where a score of 0 is reserved for essays that are blank, off-topic, non-English, not written with a Number 2 pencil, or considered illegible after several attempts at reading. The scores are summed to produce a final score from 2 to 12 (or 0).
