About Digital SAT

SAT Explained

Details for the NEW digital SAT:

· The new digital SAT will start March 2023 for international test takers

· The test will be on a computer and not paper

· 1600 format (800 verbal and 800 math) will stay the same

· The test is computer adaptive meaning: if you do well on the first verbal or math section, the second verbal or math section will be harder. Verbal has 2 sections and math has 2 sections

· There is a 10-minute break between verbal and math

· The test is shorter in terms of the amount of time and the amount of questions

· We believe the test will be fairer for international students (as well as American students), and the entire process should be less stressful for the students.

· We have full confidence that our staff and teachers will be able to manage the change to the new format and continue to instruct students in a productive and effective way just as we have done in the past

Duration: The Digital SAT lasts 2 hours and 14 minutes

Scoring: In the SAT exam, there is no penalty for wrong answers. The test will be evaluated on a 1600 point scale. The score distribution is 800 points for Math and 800 points for Reading and Writing, and then the two scores are combined for a final score.
