  • Key Perceptions


  • There is no negative marking or wrong-answer penalty.
  • Too much time is often taken up answering specific questions, especially, in the Critical Reading section, which results in loss of valuable time to attempt other questions. Also, the critical reading section now does not asks for sentence completions.
  • There are only 4 answer choices per question in the New SAT test format.
  • Only a portion of questions focus on in-depth analysis of content and evidence
  • SAT is available in print and digitally
  • After taking the SAT, students may cancel their score up until the Wednesday after they have taken the exam.
  • The best time to take the SAT is in class 11, or at the beginning of class 12, with at least six to eight months before the board exams commence.
  • There is no definition of a 'good' SAT score. Generally speaking, scoring close to the mean (average) - about 500 on critical reading and writing and 500 on mathematics - shows that a student has scored as well as about half of the other students who have taken the test.
