The ACT is often a brilliant substitute for the SAT since colleges often do not require students with an ACT score to have Subject SAT scores. So when one weighs the pros and cons of the different tests, the ACT, especially in the case of someone with explicit science leanings, works better than the SAT + Subject SATs.

The Reading Section assesses a student’s comprehension and reasoning skills and hence the SAT trainers are particular about encouraging timed reading exercises in the class in order to ensure that the student learns to read ‘ smartly,’ keeping the stress of time and comprehension in mind.
The Writing and Language Section evaluates a student’s sharp observation and editing skills in the context of extended prose passages across a range of content areas. This section gets a tad tricky since some questions require contextual connections to be made and others focus primarily on perfect punctuation skills.
The two Math Sections gauge a student’s skills for using appropriate tools strategically, searching for and making utilization of structures to do algebra and understanding the nuances of the language of the question. The fact that one Math Section allows for a calculator and the other does not is also worth dealing with in the course of training. At our SAT Preparation Dubai Center, we take care to attend to the smallest such detail in order to deliver perfection in our classes.
The Optional Essay section will no longer be a part of the SAT test after May 2021!!!!
The Reading section – 52 Questions tested in 65 minutes
The Writing section – 44 Questions tested in 35 minutes.
Both the reading and the writing are scored together on a scale ranging from 200 800.
Math
20 Questions – 25 minutes without a calculator.
38 questions – 55 minutes with a calculator.
The two sections are scored on a scale ranging from 200800.
Bonus!!!
This SAT promises great returns for those who put in qualitative effort. This is mostly due to the fact that the voluminous Vocabulary needed for the Old SAT is no longer required! Another relief is that in this SAT there are fewer sections, more time on average per question and the essay is optional. Moreover, there is no penalty/negative marking and so students do not hesitate to take a calculated risk.

The importance of SAT scores differs from school to school. Colleges also consider high school grade point averages/academic transcript, letters of recommendation, interview results, and personal essays when deciding on admissions. Also, almost all colleges and universities in the U.S. accept ACT scores in lieu of SAT scores. As a result, the importance of the SAT on an applicant’s profile depends on what else the applicant is submitting to the schools.
