New SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test)

Every college seeks to select students with outstanding qualities and accomplishments. A student’s GPA (Grade Point Average) is used to measure his/her accomplishments in school. However, every school’s standards are different and even schools in the same state may have different GPA standards. Therefore, it is hard for colleges to make judgments on potential candidates based solely on a student’s GPA score. The New SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and ACT Testscores are considered just as important as a good GPA.

The New SAT test consists of 2 scored sections: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math. The highest score for both sections is 800, for a maximum total score of 1600. The test is held 7 times a year in January, March, May, June, October, November, and December. It is recommended that students take the test at least 3 times. There are no restrictions on how many times one can take this test. However, taking the test more than three times may give colleges a negative impression. Many colleges allow the highest scores from each of the sections to be combined.

On testing day, the New SAT test is split up into 4 sections (Evidence-based reading, Evidence-based writing, Math without a calculator, and Math with a calculator) and an optional essay. The running time for this test is 3 hours (3 hours and 50 minutes with the essay). Contact usand enroll today for bright future.
