The SAT has two main sections, namely Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW, normally known as the “English” portion of the test) and the Math section. These are both further broken down into four sections: Reading, Writing and Language, Math (no calculator), and Math (calculator allowed). The test taker was also optionally able to write an essay which, in that case, is the fifth test section. The total time for the scored portion of the SAT is three hours (or three hours and fifty minutes if the optional essay section was taken).Two section scores result from taking the SAT: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Math. Section scores are reported on a scale of 200 to 800, and each section score is a multiple of ten. A total score for the SAT is calculated by adding the two section scores, resulting in total scores that range from 400 to 1600. There is no penalty or negative marking for guessing on the SAT: scores are based on the number of questions answered correctly.
The SAT is offered seven times a year in the United States: in August, October, November, December, March, May, and June and for international students SAT is offered four times a year: in October, December, March and May. The test is typically offered on the first Saturday of the month for the October, November, December, May, and June administrations.
