# SAT Mathematics

Scholastic Aptitude Test or SAT is conducted by College Baord. Most of the universities and colleges provide admissions based onn the SAT score. SaT has upgraded to Digital SAT to adapt the changing needs of students and educators. SAT focuses on evidence-based reading, writing, problems solving skills and data analysis. It can be attempted multipled times in an year.

## Know more about SAT

The SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. It is designed to assess a student's readiness for college and is administered by the College Board, a nonprofit organization. The SAT is a significant component of many college applications, and a good score can enhance a student's chances of gaining admission to their desired colleges or universities.

It consists of sections in Reading, Writing and Language, Math (with and without a calculator), and an optional Essay.

The Reading section assesses comprehension skills through passages from various subjects like literature, social sciences, and natural sciences.

The Writing and Language section evaluates grammar, usage, and rhetoric skills through multiple-choice questions.

The Math section covers topics such as algebra, geometry, and data analysis, with some questions allowing calculator use and others not.

The optional Essay section provides an opportunity for test-takers to demonstrate their analytical writing skills.

## Test Pattern

S No | Section | Time Limit | Number of Questions |
---|---|---|---|

1 | Reading | 65 minutes | 52 questions |

2 | Writing and Language | 35 minutes | 44 questions |

3 | Math (No Calculator) | 25 minutes | 20 questions |

4 | Math (Calculator) | 55 minutes | 38 questions |

5 | Optional Essay (if taken) | 50 minutes | N/A |

*The Essay section is optional and does not include a specific number of questions. It requires writing an essay in response to a prompt
