Each section of the SAT is graded form a score ranging from 200-800. A student’s overall score will be the sum of these individual scores, which can range from 400-1600. Each question (whether multiple-choice or free-response) has the same weight, and students will only be graded on their correct answers. The optional essay will be scored from a scale of 2-8. This essay does not factor into a student’s overall score but it could be a factor in college admission decisions.

What is on the SAT?
The SAT is a standardized entrance exam used across the United States to test college readiness for junior and senior year high school students. This exam is divided into two sections:
Each section is graded from a score ranging from 200 to 800, which is then added together to get a student’s total score. This final score can range from 400 to 1600. Even though the optional essay prompt is not included in a student’s overall score, many colleges and universities require an essay score which will be considered in the admission decision.
The first segment on the SAT is the Reading Test, in which students need to complete 52 questions in 65 minutes. All of these questions are multiple-choice and based on a total of five reading passages which contain text, charts, graphs, and tables. These passages generally come from three major fields of interest:
- social studies
Students must use their critical thinking skills to answer questions that are either explicitly stated, or use reasoning skills to determine implicit significances.
The second segment on the SAT is the Writing and Language Test, in which students need to complete 44 questions in 35 minutes. Like the Reading Test, this test is also all multiple-choice and based on reading passages that contain text, charts, graphs, and tables. However, students will be asked to read the given passages in order to find mistakes or weaknesses in Writing. Students will then have to use their multiple-choice options to determine what the correct improvement would be to make the sentence perfect. These improvements can include, but are not limited to, enhancing word choice, changing sentence structure, and improving punctuation.
The third and fourth segments on the SAT are part of the Mathematics Test. However, a calculator is allowed for only one portion. The calculator math segment requires students to answer 38 questions (30 multiple-choice and 8 free response) in 55 minutes. The other math segment, that does not allow the usage of a calculator, requires students to answer 20 questions (15 multiple-choice and 5 free response) in 25 minutes. For both segments, students need to use their mastery skills of linear equations, radicals, exponents, and other
In 2018, only 1% of all students who participated in the SAT obtained a score of 1450 or higher.

The final segment on the SAT is optional, in which students have 50 minutes to formulate a cohesive and flowing essay. In this case, students have to read and formulate ideas from the essay prompt to support and reason specific evidence claims, all the while using a lively writing style to express emotion and persuasion of the issue. This essay does not factor into a student’s composite score, but it could be a factor in college admission decisions.
A student’s composite score will be the sum of the English, Writing and Language, and Mathematics scores. Each question (whether multiple-choice or free response) has the same weight, and students will only be graded on their correct answers, as wrong answers are not counted.
