The SAT is a globally recognized standardized test for college admission in the United States that is intended to assess a student’s readiness for college. Through the years, the SAT has changed and with it, the way to prepare for it. Dolphin Academic Prep keeps in tune with such changes and works with each student to ensure that they have the necessary tools in hand for an effective test-taking experience.
How is the SAT structured and what does it measure?
The SAT is 3 hours long and tests one’s knowledge of math and evidenced-based reading and writing – areas that are closely tied to the school curriculum; there is also an optional 50 minute essay. Generally, students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. There are 2 main sections: (1) Math and (2) Evidenced-Based Reading and Writing. Most of the questions on the SAT, except for the essay portion of the Writing section and the grid-in portion of the Math section, are multiple choices. Each of the two sections receives a score on the scale of 200 – 800. The combined scaled SAT score can range from 400 – 1600; 1600, being the maximum score attainable, is a combination of getting a perfect scaled score in all sections. The writing section is scored separately.
