FAQs

SAT Format

SAT Exam Format

There are four main SAT sections with an optional essay section at the end. All sections are taken in one sitting.

SAT Exam Format
SAT or ACT?

Both the SAT and ACT are used for undergraduate college admissions in the US. US universities generally have no preference between the SAT and ACT.

 

Here are the general differences between the SAT and ACT:

SAT-ACT Difference

We advise students to pick the exam they can do better on. Generally, students who are good at Math do well on the SAT while students who are weaker at Math but stronger at data interpretation do better on the ACT.

 

Still not sure?

 

The best way to know which exam you should sit for is to take a SAT Diagnostic Test and a ACT Diagnostic Test.

 

You can book your Free SAT and ACT Diagnostic Tests here.

 

After the tests, our consultant will help to compare your scores and recommend which exam you should sit for.

SAT to ACT Score Conversion

You can use the table below to convert your SAT score to a ACT score or vice versa.

SAT to ACT Converter
What are SAT Subject Tests (SAT II)?

SAT Subject Tests are 1-hour exams conducted by the College Board that test students on content relating to specific subjects. The maximum score for each subject is 800.

 

Subjects include:

 

  • Math Level 1 (easier)
  • Math Level 2 (more difficult)
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • World History
  • US History
  • Literature
  • Foreign Languages (Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Spanish etc.)

 

We highly recommend sitting for two SAT Subject tests if you plan to apply to the top 25 US universities.

 

You can take multiple SAT Subject Tests in the same sitting.

SAT Registration

Who should take the SAT?

You should take the SAT if you plan to apply to any of the following programs:

 

a) US Universities – Undergraduate Programs

 

b) NUS Law (only if you have a General Paper/Knowledge & Inquiry grade of C or lower)

 

c) NUS Medicine & Dentistry (only if you are from the IB program)

 

d) SMU – Undergraduate Programs (if you do not have a A level/IB/NUS High School/Polytechnic diploma)

How can I register for the SAT?

You can register for the SAT on the College Board website: https://www.collegeboard.org/

 

You will need to create an account before you can register for a test.

 

As the Essay section is optional, you should select the option to take the SAT with Essay if you wish to sit for it.

When should I register for the SAT?

The SAT registration deadline is usually a month before the actual exam date.

 

However, you should register for the SAT as soon as you decide to sit for it. This is because spaces in test centres tend to run out before the registration deadline.

SAT Tips

When should I start preparing for the SAT?

While there is no cut-off age to sit for the SAT, most students sit for the SAT in the last two years of high school. For international school students, that would be in Grade 11. For Junior College/IP students, that would be in JC 1/2.

 

You should first decide on your SAT test date, then start preparing for the SAT 2 – 3 months before that date.

 

Generally, you should put in a minimum of 80 hours of preparation before your test. The 80 hours could consist of time spent in class, doing revision, taking practice tests, and completing homework assignments.

Why is my SAT score not improving even after tons of practice?

This is usually because the SAT isn’t like your typical high school exam. You must understand the logic of the SAT before you can score on the exam.

 

To conquer the SAT, you need the right strategy – a specific way of approaching the questions given. And this is what we provide: an original, strategy-driven curriculum written by the perfect scorers themselves. We teach you to think in the right way and to use the right methods.

Should I re-take the SAT after a first attempt?

Generally, yes.

 

We find that most students tend to take the SAT at least twice to try to secure a better score. Even if your total SAT score does not improve, it is to your benefit if you make a score improvement on either section (Verbal or Math) as many schools practise superscoring (see below on “What is superscoring?”).

What is superscoring?

Superscoring is a scoring policy used by some colleges.

 

With superscoring, the college will take the best score obtained for each section across all your SAT attempts, and add it up to tabulate your total SAT score. Here’s an example:

 

SAT Attempt 1 

Verbal – 750/800

Math – 800/800

Total – 1550/1600

 

SAT Attempt 2

Verbal – 770/800

Math – 790/800

Total – 1560/1600

 

Superscored SAT Score

Verbal – 770/800 (from 2nd attempt)

Math – 800/800 (from 1st attempt)

Total – 1570/1600

IvyPrep Courses

SAT Masterclass or Private Tutoring?

Content Coverage

 

The SAT Masterclass is a comprehensive course that covers all sections on the SAT, including the Essay. Lessons are conducted at a standard pace.

 

SAT Private Tutoring is a customizable course. This means that you can choose to focus on a specific area (eg. just Writing and Reading) or on all SAT sections, depending on your personal strengths and weaknesses. The lesson pace will be tailored to each individual.

 

Schedule & Frequency

 

The SAT Masterclass has a fixed schedule. Classes are mainly on Saturdays and occasional weekday evenings. It takes about 4 – 8 weeks to complete the entire SAT Masterclass.

 

SAT Private Tutoring is held from Mondays to Fridays only. Our consultant will work with you to plan a tutoring schedule that suits your availability. The course duration can stretch anywhere from a few days to a few months.

 

Still not sure?

 

We’d be happy to help. Contact us with your queries and we will respond as soon as possible.

When can I start attending the SAT Masterclass?

Once you have registered and completed your payment, you can start attending any class in our SAT Masterclass Schedule.

 

We recommend following the batches in our schedule as the batches are designed to lead up to specific SAT exam dates.

 

However, you can also attend make-up lessons in other batches if you are unable to attend any lesson within your chosen batch.

I missed a Masterclass lesson. Can I do a makeup lesson?

Absolutely. Simply refer to our SAT Masterclass Schedule to look for another date when the class is held, drop us a phone call or email to let us know, and you can come down for the lesson.

 

What's my expected score improvement?

Your expected improvement would depend on your starting score.
