SAT Test USA & International

The digital SAT is composed of two sections: Reading and Writing and Math. Students have 64 minutes to complete the Reading and Writing section and 70 minutes to complete the Math section for a total of 2 hours and 14 minutes.

Each section is divided into 2 equal length modules, and there is a 10-minute break between the Reading and Writing section and the Math section. The first module of each section contains a broad mix of easy, medium, and hard questions. Based on how students perform on the first module, the second module of questions will either be more difficult or less difficult.

Compared to the ACT®, the SAT provides 68% more time per question:

Component Time Allotted (minutes) Number of Questions/Tasks
Reading and Writing 64 (two 32-minute modules) 54
Math 70 (two 35-minute modules) 44
Total 134 98

Most of the questions are multiple choice, though some of the math questions ask you to enter the answer rather than select it.

On all questions, there’s no penalty for guessing: if you’re not sure of the answer, it’s better to guess than leave the response blank.

The digital SAT Suite, including the SAT, continues to measure the skills and knowledge that students like you are learning in school and that matter most for college and career readiness.

The assessments in the suite continue to be scored on the same score scale as the paper and pencil tests they are replacing (for example, the SAT will continue to be
scored on a 400–1600 point scale).

The two sections of the digital SAT—(1) Reading and Writing and (2) Math— measure largely similar knowledge and skills as their paper and pencil predecessors, including:

Use of reading/writing passages that come from different subject areas and vary in difficulty level.
Emphasis on showing command of evidence, both textual and quantitative.

Emphasis on high-utility words and phrases in context.
Focus on revising texts to improve the effectiveness of written expression, and meet specific rhetorical goals.
Measurement of ability to edit texts to follow core conventions of Standard English sentence structure, usage, and punctuation.
Focus on the math that matters most for college and career readiness and success.
Math problems in (and out of) context.
Use of both multiple-choice and student-produced response question formats in the Math section.

SAT Total Score

Your total score is a number between 400 and 1600. The total score is the sum of the two section scores: Reading and Writing, and Math. Each of these two section scores has a possible range of 200–800.

How the Section Scores Are Calculated

Your section scores are based on your performance on all test questions in the section. If you’re routed to the higher-difficulty second module, you don’t need to answer every question correctly to get a good score; conversely, if you’re routed to the lower-difficulty second module, you’ll have a full opportunity to answer questions in the module correctly and show what you know and can do.

Section scores range from 200 to 800, in 10–point intervals. Your scores on the Reading and Writing and Math sections added together will give you your total score for the SAT, which is on a 400–1600 scale, also in 10–point intervals.
