Questions related to SAT

Showing 48 out of 48 Questions

the cutoff for qualifying was40% in both sat,mat in sat i have scored 48 and in mat 40 but i have not been selected why when i have scored 40%in both?

vignesh 21st Feb, 2020

Dear Daniyel,

Both the SAT and the MAT exams that you have taken are strictly percentile based.

Applicants appeared for the exams would have got more percentile that yours and that would be the reason for your rejection.

However you can take the exam in the next session and try scoring a percentile of more than 85 which may be a better chance to get qualified.

Best of luck.

What is the difference between subject SAT test and General SAT ???If one has to give SAT for biology what will be the syllabus ???

hrithik jain 10th Feb, 2020


The main and the biggest difference is that General SAT tests for the general Knowledge and critical reasoning while SAT subject test your knowledge in specific areas say: biology, math etc.

Also, General SAT is around 3 hours paper whereas, SAT subject is a 1 hour paper. General SAT is offered for around 7 times a year and SAT Subject is offered for like 6 times a year that too, depending on the subject (date wise).

There are two test for SAT Biology- Biology (E) and Biology (M), you cannot take both of them on the same date. (E) stands for Ecological and (M) for Molecular. The syllabus topics are as follows:

1. Cellular and Molecular Biology- 15%(E) and 27%(M)

2. Ecology - 23%(E) and 13%(M)

3. Genetics - 15%(E) and 20%(M)

4. Organismal Biology- 25%(E) and 25%(M)

5.  Evolution and Diversity - 22%(E) 15%(M )

*Consider these figures to be approximate and cross check before finalizing.


Can I get admission into IIT or NIT based on my SAT subject test scores?? if so how to apply for it???

Koyel Bagchi 8th Feb, 2020


No iit or nit can not accepts sat.

Because the majority of students are selects here through jee not by their talents. Even if the pattern of jee is changed then also it is not similar as sat.

Hope it helps you.

Hello Aspirant,

Basically there is no eligibility criteria specifically for SAT 2020. Generally candidates can opt for the exam in their junior or senior years of high school (Indian Grades 11th or 12th), to be precise, aspirants are roughly between 17 or 18 years of age.

So, you will be eligible for SAT 2020.

Good Luck
