SAT Preparation Classes

The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a mandatory part of the application process to any undergraduate programme in the US.

About the SAT

The SAT consists of three sections: Evidence-based Reading & Writing, Math and an optional Essay. The Reading & Writing and Math sections account are graded on a scale of 200 to 800 while the Essay section is graded on a scale of 6 to 24.

Reading & Writing

This section includes a reading test and a writing and language test. Each test is composed of multi-paragraph passages and multiple-choice questions. The reading test measures the comprehension and reasoning. The writing and language test assesses expression, grammar, usage and punctuation.

Essay (Optional)

This section asks students to read and analyse and argument and write an effective response. The essay section is optional, however many universities either require or recommend completing the Essay section and use your essay score as part of their evaluation. Hence, it is advisable to complete this section.

Math

This section includes multiple choice and student-produced response questions based on the math that college-bound students typically learn during their first three years of high school.
