SAT Preparation at Option

Having completed 12 years in training industry in Dubai, Option feels indebted to its large and appreciative client base and looks ahead to more years of good work. With every milestone we have crossed, the Option team has grown better, smarter and more informed, taking under its wings students from schools across Dubai & the UAE.

We excitedly ushered in 2023 with students ready for the Digital SAT of March and went on to train more students for the May & June SATs, proving once again our powers to stretch ourselves and to take on any kind of training-related challenge. Today, we can say with certainity that the Digital SAT (DSAT) is truely a relevant test.

The Reading and Writing and Language Sections of the previous SAT have been merged into a single section-Reading and Writing (R & W)- comprising of short passages each followed by a discrete question. The passages being so many, the topics are diverse and essentially relevant to the kind of resources student will engage with in college. The R & W section is broken down into 2 modules of 32 minutes each: a student’s performance in module 1 will determine the level of questions in module 2. Also, students can move back and forth to tackle questions within a module; they can flag questions for later review and even annotate parts of a question to grapple with it better- features that make for a more engaging test experience.

The DSAT has blended the 2 MATH SECTIONS into a single section comprising of 2 modules of 35 minutes each. Questions test your ability to solve problems and use appropriate approaches and tools strategically. The range of topics covered has been expanded and the math section has been segregated into Algebra, Advanced Math, Problem-solving & Data Analysis, and Trigonometry & Geometry. The main advantage of digital SAT is that the calculator will be allowed for all math questions. Students can bring their own approved calculator or use the provided on-screen calculator.
