SAT Overview

The SAT tests students on three important subject areas (Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing) across 10 different timed multiple-choice sections. Each student receives a score between 200-800 points on each of those three subject areas, leading to a maximum possible score of 2400.


The SAT is a challenging test for several reasons. The Critical Reading section tests students’ stamina as well as their abilities to understand a variety of passage types and vocabulary concepts. On the Math section, test takers must navigate through a number of concepts from arithmetic, algebra, and geometry combined with problem-solving techniques. And the Writing section tests students on grammar and usage concepts as well as their timed writing abilities.
