WE CAN HELP YOU REGISTER FOR THE SAT!

The SAT is NOT an English or Math test.

The SAT is a test of aptitude, the ability to apply learned concepts, skills, techniques, and methods in a strategic manner to answer questions within a limited amount of time.

IT IS A TEST OF STRATEGY.

THE BETTER YOUR STRATEGY, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF OBTAINING A HIGHER SCORE

For example, the problems on the math section of the SAT generally do not require operations more complex than addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. However, the problems seem difficult (in terms of understanding, as well as solving within a short time because they require the candidate to attempt the problems strategically. In addition, problems that may be solved via simpler methods could take considerably longer than if solved using efficient strategies.

Registering for the SAT can be a daunting task. It can take a while and you must be very careful when entering your details since this information will be used to confirm your identity on test day at the testing center, as well as given to universities when reporting your test scores. When you choose a study program with us, we can also help you register for the rest as well as send score reports to the universities you want! 

The SAT is not administered every month. Therefore it is critical that your strategy to prepare and succeed must take into consideration when you can sit for the test. This is also crucial when sending test scores to universities in order to make sure that your scores reach them in time to evaluate your admission application fully and to consider you for any scholarships that you may be eligible for. The months in which you can sit for the SAT test are given below.

HOW CAN I CALCULATE MY SAT SCORE?

In order to be able to achieve your highest score, it is imperative to understand how your answers on the SAT are scored.

TOTAL SCORE = READING TEST SCORE + WRITING TEST SCORE + MATH SECTION SCORE (NO CALC + CALC)

Each of these scores are calculated from a table using your 'Raw Score' on each of these sections.

RAW SCORE = # OF CORRECT ANSWERS

 

Therefore, in order to calculate your total score, you will need the following information:

EVIDENCE-BASED READING AND WRITING TEST RAW SCORE:

  • total number of correct answers from the Reading Section, lets call this RSRS (Reading Section Raw Score)

  • total number of correct answers from the Writing and Language Section, lets call this WSRS (Writing and Language Section Raw Score)

MATH TEST RAW SCORE:

  • total number of correct answers from the Math, No Calculator Section, lets call this MNRS (Math No Calculator Section Raw Score)

  • total number of correct answers from the Math, Calculator Section, lets call this MCRS (Math Calculator Section Raw Score)
     

Once you have this information use the table and the steps below to calculate your Section Score and then your final Test Score

CALCULATING YOUR EVIDENCE-BASED READING AND WRITING TEST SCORE:

STEP 1: CONVERT RSRS TO READING TEST SCORE FROM THE TABLE

STEP 2: CONVERT WSRS TO WRITING AND LANGUAGE TEST SCORE FROM THE TABLE

STEP 3: ADD THE TWO SCORES FROM ABOVE TO OBTAIN READING AND WRITING TEST SCORE

STEP 4: MULTIPLY THIS SUM BY 10. THIS IS YOUR FINAL EVIDENCE-BASED READING AND WRITING SECTION SCORE

 

 CALCULATING YOUR MATH SECTION SCORE: 

STEP 5: ADD MNRS AND MCRS. THIS IS YOUR MATH SECTION RAW SCORE

STEP 6: CONVERT YOUR MATH SECTION RAW SCORE FROM THE TABLE TO OBTAIN YOUR FINAL MATH SECTION SCORE

 

YOUR FINAL SAT SCORE IS THE SUM OF YOUR EVIDENCE-BASED READING, WRITING, AND MATH SECTION SCORES

IMPORTANT: 


The Raw Score Conversation Table is different for each test date. For instance, a raw score of 57 in Math might translate to an 800 on one test date and 790 on another.
