SAT I Test Prep

When you hear people talk about the “SAT test,” they’re really talking about the SAT I, and if you’re a high school student, especially one at a competitive New York high school, you’ll hear the SAT talked about.

SAT Content and Format

The SAT tests is comprised of three sections including a Reading Test, a Writing and Language Test, a two-part Math Test and an optional essay. The test contains 3 hours (plus an optional 50 minute essay) of material, unless a student has qualified for extended time. The test format is multiple-choice and 13 “grid-in” math questions, where the student must provide their own answers.

One point is awarded for each correct answer and no points are lost or gained for incorrect or unanswered questions. Scaled scores range from 200-800 in the Verbal (comprised of the Reading Test score plus the Writing and Language Test score) and the two-part Math Test. Both are added together to create a composite score ranging from 400-1600.
