    SAT structure


    • The test is adaptive. Each section has two modules.
    • You’ll answer questions from the first module before moving to the next. The questions in the second module depend on how you performed on the first module.
    • Questions in general are multiple choice, though some of the math questions, you may be asked to enter the answer rather than selecting a choice.
    • No negative marks, you can freely give a guess answer too
    • Students can use Calculator throughout their mathematics test



    • Reading and Writing ( English ) – 800
    • Mathematics – 800
    • Total – 1600


    Scores – Important information

    1. Maximum score in  Mathematics – 800
    2. Maximum score in Reading and Writing – 800
    3. Total score ( Maximum) – 1600

    Digital SAT is adaptive. This means, based on the performance in the 1st module, the 2nd module questions could be easier or harder.

    Let’s say, the student provides correct answers less than 70% in the 1st module of Mathematics, then the 2nd module questions would automatically become easier. But the maximum score for the section is capped at 590.  Whereas if the student scores above 70% in the 1st module, then the 2nd module gets tougher, but the student can score up to 800 in Mathematics section.   

    Similar method followed for Reading and writing.

    Summary – 

    1. Whoever scores well in the 1st modules of each subject, would get tougher questions in their 2nd modules.  And they can achieve maximum 1600 score
    2. Whoever scores does not score well in the 1st modules of each subject, would get easier questions in their 2nd modules.  And they can achieve maximum 1180 score, even if they do very well in their 2nd modules
