Many American universities and colleges require good SAT test scores from their applicants. The SAT is tests literacy, writing, and mathematical skills in ways that are meant to predict a student’s academic success. The four-hour test is a difficult challenge for most students. As they prepare for it, our experts in Berton College can support them with expert and experienced help.

The SAT has four required sections and an optional essay. The sections are:

  • Reading (52 questions, 65 minutes)

  • Writing and Language (44 questions, 35 minutes)

  • Math, No calculator (20 questions, 25 minutes)

  • Math, with Calculator (38 questions, 55 minutes)

  • Essay (1 prompt, 50 minutes, optional)

Although the essay is described as “optional,” it is, nevertheless, required by some universities and colleges. Even when it is not required, it may be a good idea to write it, as it can support your claim to be a careful reader, an analytical thinker, and a good writer. 

Each of the two graders who will read your essay will assign a score between one and four for reading, analysis, and writing, and their scores in each category will be added.
