New SAT Writing and Language Section

The Writing and Language Section of the New SAT focuses on reading the given passage to locate the errors and flaws in the underlined words or phrases and to fix them.

As such, practical skills needed for editing and proofreading an essay or an article are what the New SAT measures.

Brief Info on New SAT

  • The writing section has four passages, and all questions are multiple-choice.
  • Each passage consists of 11 questions: a total of 44 questions in 35 minutes.
  • Some passages have graphical information linked to the course, and some questions are based on interpreting these graphs.
  • The writing is part of the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section, with a total score of 800 for reading and writing.
  • The underlined words or phrases must be read carefully for the correct answer. Some questions involve reading the whole passage and interpreting a graph. For instance, you may be asked to pick a sentence that corrects a false impression that elucidates the significance of the given data.
  • The writing section includes social studies, humanities, science, careers, and history.

The Writing and Language Test assesses various skills.

  • It tests the foundation of writing, such as sentence structure, usage, punctuation, changing words, clauses, sentences, verb tense, parallel construction, subject-verb agreement, and comma use.
  • A few questions ask you to pick the best words based on the content close to them. Your objective should be to create an accurate or concise reading passage or improve the tone, style, or syntax.
  • Having command over evidence helps you improve how passages expand information and ideas. For example, the correct answer would be a response that hones a challenging claim or includes a crucial supporting point.
  • A passage’s organization and impact are also tested. For instance, you may be asked about words or structural changes that improve the passage and how well its sentences and paragraphs work together.
  • The four passages would combine topics from history, social studies, and science; a critical eye is required to make editorial changes and correct errors.

This is what the questions look like

In the above example, we can see that the first question is a question related to tense, the second is a clause-related question, and the third is a question about prepositions. Option SAT Dubai supports its students to get their target score with the right tips and practice-oriented sessions.
