 SAT Sample Questions & Answers

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge. It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught


every day in high school classrooms. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions.

Taking the SAT is the first step in finding the right college for you — the place where you can further develop your skills and pursue your passions. But SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions.

The College Board is a not-for-profit education organization dedicated to helping students discover their path to higher education.

The SAT is one of the College Board’s best-known programs. In keeping with the College Board’s mission, the SAT provides an equal opportunity for all students to show what they’ve learned in school and how they apply that knowledge.

Each section of your SAT (critical reading, mathematics and writing) will be scored on a 200- to 800-point scale, for a possible total of 2400. You’ll also get two “subscores” on the writing section: a multiple-choice score from 20 to 80, and an essay score from 2 to 12.

But how do you get these scores? Two steps happen before you see a final score.

First, we figure out your raw score by:

  • Adding points for correct answers.
  • Subtracting a fraction of a point for wrong answers.

Remember: Questions that you skipped don’t count either for or against your score, and points aren’t taken away for wrong answers on the math questions where you needed to fill the answers in a grid.

Then we take your raw score and turn it into a scaled score. This is where the score of 200–800 points comes from, and it is done through a statistical process called “equating.” This process makes it possible to compare your score with the scores of other students who took alternative versions of the test, and to your own scores on previous tests.

Visit How the SAT Is Scored to see exactly how your score gets calculated.

SAT-I and SAT II Tests

SAT Reasoning Test

The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly known as SAT I) measures the critical reading, writing and mathematical abilities you'll need for academic success in the US.

SAT Subject Tests

SAT Subject Tests (formerly known as SAT II) measure your knowledge and skills in specific subjects. Subject Tests fall into five general subject areas - English, History and Social Studies, Mathematics, Science and Languages. Students can take up to three SAT Subject Tests on a single test date, but cannot take the SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Tests during the same test administration.

Why take the SAT?

As the nation’s most widely used college admission test, the SAT is the first step toward higher education for students of all backgrounds. It’s taken by more than two million students every year and is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities.

There are a number of reasons to take the SAT, but here are some of the best:

It tests what you already know.

The SAT tests the reading, writing and mathematics skills that you learn in school and that are critical for success in college and beyond.

It’s fair to everyone.

The questions are thoroughly researched and tested to make sure students from all backgrounds have an equal chance to succeed.

It’s more than just a test.

The SAT also provides the opportunity for you to connect to scholarship opportunities, place out of certain college courses and learn more about your academic strengths.

How much time will I have to take the SAT?

The SAT is made up of 10 sections:
  • A 25-minute essay
  • Six 25-minute sections (mathematics, critical reading and writing)
  • Two 20-minute sections (mathematics, critical reading and writing)
  • A 10-minute multiple-choice writing section

Total test time: 3 hours and 45 minutes

You’ll also get three short breaks during the testing, so don’t forget to bring a snack!

Testing accommodations are available for students with a documented need. Learn more about accommodations like extra time.



SAT tests measure the knowledge and skills that students need to do college-level work. There are two kinds of SAT tests - the SAT Reasoning Test (general test) and SAT Subject Tests.

The SAT test is administered by not-for-profit organisation The College Board.

The SAT test (along with the ACT), it is one of two standardised testing programs widely recognised for undergraduate college admissions in the US. Most colleges and universities in the United States require SAT or ACT test scores as part of their application process.

SAT Reasoning Test

The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly known as SAT I) measures the critical reading, writing and mathematical abilities you'll need for academic success in the US.

SAT Subject Tests

SAT Subject Tests (formerly known as SAT II) measure your knowledge and skills in specific subjects. Subject Tests fall into five general subject areas - English, History and Social Studies, Mathematics, Science and Languages. Students can take up to three SAT Subject Tests on a single test date, but cannot take the SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Tests during the same test administration.

For more information about the tests visit the College Board website:

Who needs to sit the tests?

If you are applying to an undergraduate programme in the US then you will most likely have to sit SAT Tests (or ACT) as part of the application process. Many universities may require or recommend one or more of the SAT Subject Tests as well as the SAT Reasoning Test.

Please check admissions criteria of the college(s) you intend applying to, in order to determine which test(s) you should take.

Where can I sit the tests?

There are SAT test centres in Auckland, Wanganui, Lower Hutt, Wellington and Christchurch.

Testing Closer to Home

If you live more than 75 miles (121 km) from the nearest test centre you may be able to sit the test closer to your home.
