Frequently Asked Questions by Students

The exam breakdown comprises 2 sections – 

  1. Reading, writing, and language
  2. Mathematics

The subjects and questions are in the form of multiple-choice questions.

The best way to understand and familiarise yourself with SAT is to regularly practice with its sample papers and take online mock tests. Our SAT experts can help you understand SAT sample papers without fuss. So, connect with our specialists if you require additional help.

SAT exam sample papers help students understand the type of featured questions, the focused subjects, and the duration of solving each section. Furthermore, students can practice using SAT exam sample papers to test their knowledge, improve their time management and manage their stress and nervousness.

Since SAT exam sample papers closely resemble the real test paper, solving them can sharpen solving skills and retain concentration for over 2 hours.

SAT question papers (digital or otherwise) come with the same questions – (reading, writing, and language comprise 54 questions, and mathematics comprises 44 questions). The time set for the Reading, Writing section is 64 minutes, while for mathematics, the duration is 70 minutes.

Thus, the SAT digital exam duration is 2 hours 14 minutes (134 minutes, per 2024 revised exam rules)

Yes, previous SAT sample papers have answers intact to help students prepare for their upcoming exams. However, students must remain honest with themselves when solving sample papers. They must rely on their understanding and knowledge to solve answers. And only once all are solved can they tally it with the real answers.

Previously, there was negative marking where the student lost marks for every wrong answer.

Now, there are no such rules. Hence, students must attempt all questions (even if they don't know the answers). Their guesswork could fetch them some extra marks in the process.

Indeed, you can take the SAT online. But it will have to be on a computer from the exam centre. Alternatively, students can bring their laptops to the exam centre and take the test there.

However, some schools or exam centres have rules for students to take the test on the centre's computer only.

There is nothing called the best SAT study material. And it shouldn't be, either. Students must prepare SAT by studying several study materials and textbooks.

Here are some top SAT study textbooks to refer to.

  1. Barron's SAT Study Guide Premium, 2021-2022
  2. KALLIS' SAT Pattern Strategy, 3rd Edition
  3. Kaplan's SAT Prep Plus 2022
  4. McGraw Hill Education's SAT Elite 2022
  5. SAT Prep Black Book, 2nd Edition
