A big hurdle called SAT awaits the students aspiring enrolment into colleges. The SAT competition has turned tough with a number of institutions undertaking coaching for the same. The SAT exam has undergone a revision in 2016 and the total marks have been brought down to 1600 from 2400. That means, there were 03 subjects of 800 earlier and there are only 02 subjects now. The SAT exam consists of Reading, Writing and Language and Mathematics. There is a third optional Essay test, which is mandatory for some of the universities/ colleges.
The reading test will have passages from Social science, History, Literature, Chemistry, Physics etc. The student will have to read, analyse and answer the questions based on the passage. At the same time, the writing and language test consists of multiple-choice questions based on packages, a student has to read, edit and proofread. SAT exams are conducted 05 to 07 times in a year, depending upon countries and regions.
The Mathematics examination has two parts. One part with complicated calculations, where the student can use calculators. The second part is meant for ascertaining the student’s capability in analysing and understanding the concepts. The second part restricts the usage of a calculator.
The students can apply for the exams online and pay the registration fee. There is an option for disabled students to request for special accommodation. It is difficult to pinpoint a perfect SAT score. The competition is increasing day by day. And you have to perform extremely well to get into the best universities. The colleges prefer students from the top segment only. Since it will have a positive effect on the image of the college. Being the best among the lot, it will also reflect on the result of the college. Thus amplifying the value of the college.
The SAT has two sections, i.e. Reading and Writing and Mathematics. The minimum score one can get in each subject is 200 and the maximum is 800. Each right answer will earn you one point.
Perfecting the SAT score needs consistent preparation from the student. You must be able to glide through the question paper answering each question right. Even a single mistake can pull you back from reaching the perfect score.
Along with preparation, the student must have the strategy to answer the questions without wasting much time on a particular question. Because more the time spent on one question, less the chances of finishing the question paper.
The steps for scoring the perfect score in the SAT could be as follows:
As in any competition, the most persevering one will have upper hand over others.
Hard work is the key to success in anyone’s life.
As it is said, “your attitude decides your altitude”. A positive attitude can deliver you the results. Rather than thinking about the number of students you are going to compete with, you must think about improving your quality to reach the next level.
