All about SAT e-book download
SAT e-book download- SAT is a standardised test taken for college level admission in the United States. It is an internationally recognised test that evaluates a candidate’s knowledge in reading, writing and quantitative aptitude and also other specialised subjects.
SAT test is based on subjects taught in high school programs. SAT assesses how well the test takers analyse and solve problems. It is usually taken by junior and senior high school students.
SAT is of two types: SAT Reasoning Test or SAT and SAT Subjects Test. Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based exams that assess a candidate's strength in specific subjects. Unlike the SAT test, some colleges require or recommend that you take SAT Subject Tests.
The SAT is offered seven times each year in the US and six times internationally. Candidates can sit for the test in October, November, December, January, March, May and June. March SAT is offered only in the US.
This year, the College Board decided to redesign the SAT to make it more ‘relevant in the changing times’. According to Lisa Jain-India Representative of College Board, the test has been redesigned to make it clearer and useful for the students both at college level and also in their career paths. The changes will be administered from Spring 2016.
Some of the key features of the redesigned SAT are:
The exam will be scored on a total of 1600. The Evidence-Based Reading/Writing and Math sections will each be scored on a 200 to 800 point scale. Scores for the Essay section will be reported separately.
The Essay will be optional, and not mandatory like it currently is
No points will be deducted for incorrect answers
The duration of the exam will be about 3 hours, with an additional 50 minutes for the Essay.
Calculators will be permitted only on certain portions of the Math section, and not throughout.
