Frequently Asked Questions About the SAT (FAQs)
What is the SAT?
The SAT is a test administered to high school students to assess their college readiness, independent of grades and other indicators. The test was first administered in 1926 and was a requirement for admission to most four-year colleges and universities in the U.S., however, students may now elect to take the ACT instead of the SAT. All colleges accept either test, so you will want to take the one that is the best fit for your skills and abilities in order to earn the highest score.
How many questions are on the SAT?
The SAT is designed to measure students’ abilities in three areas: Reading, Writing and Language, and Math. There is also an optional Essay section (required by some colleges).
The Reading section consists of 52 multiple-choice questions that are based on passages drawn from U.S. and World Literature, History/Social Studies, and Science.
The Writing and Language section has 44 multiple-choice questions that are related to four passages on a range of topics that include Careers, History/Social Studies, Humanities and Science.
The Math section is divided into two subsections: calculator and no calculator. There are 38 questions in the calculator section and 20 questions in the no-calculator section.
Should I Take the SAT or ACT?
Choosing whether to take the SAT or ACT can be a difficult decision for most students. Virtually all colleges accept either test, so you will want to take the one that is the best fit for your skills and abilities in order to earn the highest score.
To help you decide, the NC Global team has created a test to measure comparative ACT/SAT ability called the “Test of ACT/SAT Comparative Ability,” or simply TASCA™. It can help you identify which test is better for you, the ACT or SAT.
Preparing for the SAT is vital for improving a student’s chances of acceptance to the college or university of his or her choice. To find SAT tutoring near you, call NC Global Education at 800-469-1028, or click here to contact us online.
