Now, you can see that the Evidence Based Reading & Writing (EBRW) is divided into two subsections (Reading and Writing & Language) & Math is divided into two subsections (Maths No Calculator & Maths Calculator).

 

You get 2 interval sessions while taking the SAT. That is, one after the Writing & Language sub-section and one after the Math Level 1 (No Calculator) session.

 

Let’s decode all the subsections of general SAT – Reading, Writing & Language, Math (No Calculator) and Math (Calculator) & Essay sessions successively.

 

 

READING SECTION OVERVIEW:

 

SAT Reading section is the longest section and there’s only 65 minutes to answer this section. Special focus will be given for SAT Reading section during SAT Coaching Program.

 

The Reading section is passage-based and each passage has 10-12 multiple-choice questions (A, B, C & D). You’ll be facing 5 comprehensive passages in this section – One from US/World Literature, Two from History/Social Studies and the last Two from Science.

 

Some passages accompany bars/graphs/charts according to the passage. Indeed, you will deal with tables/graphs in all the four sections of the SAT.

 

College Board often takes these comprehensive passages from prose or selections from fictional narratives.

 

After accomplishing the Reading section, you’ll get 5 minutes break.

 

 

WRITING & LANGUAGE SECTION OVERVIEW:

 

SAT Writing & Language section is about half of the Reading part duration.

 

Writing & Language section is Passage based and each passage is accompanied with 11 questions. Every question in the passage is of multiple-choice one. You’ve to answer 44 questions in 35 minutes.

 

These comprehensions deal with Careers, Humanities, Science and Social Studies. All the Writing passages will be argument-based, explanatory and non-fiction narrative.

 

This section passages examine your writing competencies. You’ve to revise the passage to improve the expression of ideas for some questions. For some questions, you’ve to edit the passage, rectify the errors in the sentence structure, usage, or punctuation. Some passages accompany bars/charts to support the comprehensive passages.

 

Some questions in the comprehension will direct you to an underlined portion of the passages and some questions direct you to the location of a passage and ask you to think about the entire passage and answer the multiple-choices.

 

 

MATH NON - CALCULATOR SECTION STRUCTURE:

 

During SAT Coaching classes, In the non calculator section, you are strictly prohibited to use calculator. Tips and Tricks are discussed to overcome calculation problems. 

 

You’ve have to answer 20 questions in 25 minutes duration. 15 of them will be multiple-choice ones and the remaining five are grid-ins.

 

 

In this section, SAT Preparation will cover the questions from the syllabus of three areas – Heart of Algebra, Passport to Advanced Math, and Additional Topics. Let me illustrate the syllabus in the below blueprint:
