SAT

Scholastic Aptitude Test or the Scholastic Assessment Test is abbreviated as SAT or SAT-1. The test is conducted seven times every year in the month of January, March (or April alternating), May, June, October, November, and December at a worldwide level. It is a pen paper-based test that tests writing, critical reading,and mathematical knowledge. The SAT is designed to measure the thinking skills you’ll need to succeed in college and career.

The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Tests and Scholastic Assessment Tests) is a standardized test used by most US colleges and universities. By assessing your school grades and your SAT scores, you are considered as a potential student for college admissions by College Board ETS (Educational Testing Service).

The SAT has four tests, with the Essay being optional. The three tests that everyone will take are (1) the Reading Test, (2) the Writing and Language Test, and (3) the Math Test. The timing and number of questions are as follows: Reading - 65 mins for 52 questions, Writing and Language - 35 mins for 44 questions, Math - 80 mins for 58 questions, and Essay (optional) - 50 mins for 1 question. So, a total of 180 mins (230 mins with Essay) for 154 questions (155 with Essay).

The Writing Skill section tests not only your quickness for finding grammatical errors and comprehensively written sentences but also checks your ability to write a fine-draft wide-ranging and comprehensive essay on a particular topic, issue, or current affair. In this section, you are being tested on how effectively you express your opinion on a certain topic. Your score depends on how many correct answers you solve within a limited and definite period of time. Speed & accuracy both plays an equal role. The total score ranges from 400 to 1600. This score is the sum of the scores on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section (which includes the Reading and Writing and Language Tests) and the Math section. Of the 154 questions in the entire SAT (not counting the Essay), 96 questions are on the Reading and the Writing and Language Tests and 58 questions are on the Math Test. Section scores for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and for Math are reported on a scale from 200 to 800. The essay has three dimensions –reading, analysis, and writing. Two raters read each response and assign a score of 1 to 4 to each of the three dimensions. The two raters’ scores are combined to yield Reading, Analysis, and Writing scores, each on a scale of 2 to 8.

Knowing the GMAT curriculum ahead of time improves a candidate's problem-solving intuition and allows them to get more familiar with their strengths and limitations.

The GMAT exam pre isn't that much tough as it is said. All you need is a laser-like focus and a clear plan of action. To do so, You have two options, one to self-study and the other to enroll in a coaching center. Both techniques are acceptable; it just depends on your priorities. To pick the most suitable strategy out of two to prepare for the GMAT exams, you must first evaluate your requirement and decide according to it. Everything you need to collect before beginning is the best suitable GMAT books, supportive resources for study, and self-discipline to make the productive study. If time runs short, and you feel the need for expert help, you should step toward the coaching classes to meet a goal and to get a competitive edge in GMAT exam preparation, since most of the coaching classes have fast track prep plan and can guide you better to ace the exam.

How To Do GMAT Preparation?

Study techniques have altered as a result of today's technology breakthroughs. While this may simplify many elements of our life as well as complicate them. Many students, for example, are overwhelmed by the volume of GMAT preparation information available online. “Quantity is most important which means practicing a lot of questions is a guarantee of success in the GMAT exam” this belief is there due to excess information on social media. As a result, the majority of students start depending on numerous sources.

This is a common misunderstanding, as the GMAT assesses your verbal reasoning, analytical thinking, and math abilities. Students do better when they have a solid foundation and use time management techniques. As a result, it's all too easy to become caught up in the trap of spending months doing practice test after practice exam from various sources. A better strategy to study for the GMAT is to stick to the GMAC's curriculum and use the test-books maker's and exam materials. After that, if you have time, you can look into other options. You must invest quality time and honest effort to prepare for GMAT exams with smart strategy as the GMAT exam is more time management test than subjective understanding. After you've completed a series of practice exams, your preparation will be complete. Lastly, you will be left with the GMAT mock test. There are many options available for the GMAT mock test, nevertheless, the most trustworthy is GMAC mocks.

Two key points: Keep in mind that retired test questions are never repeated in the real exam, and your chances of achieving higher marks are unrelated to the number of times you prepare for the exam.

Here are some more tips to help you with GMAT preparation:

Don't write on books
A pen and paper-based study strategy work great for those of us still living in the dark ages. However, because the GMAT is a computer-based exam, writing or marking relevant passages in books would foster ineffective habits. When you employ this study strategy, your books will become worthless when you get into revision mode.

Use the official GMAC books
While it may be tempting to consult a variety of sources, the official GMAC material is designed to fulfill the study needs of all students, whether they are beginners, intermediates, or advanced.

The GMAT is not a quantity Exam
The quality of your preparation is extremely crucial not the quantity. To score higher on the Verbal, Quant, IR, and AWA parts of the test, make sure your foundations are solid, that you comprehend and apply time-saving tactics, and that you follow strategies.

I am working as Marketing Manager in NDTV. I did not have any idea about IELTS preparation. Being a convent school student, I did not have a language barrier. The only issue I had related to preparation was the right guidance, that I got here. Honestly saying tips and tricks helped me a lot to get that much score. I am thankful to my teacher for the right strategy.

Before coming to Masterclass Space, I had visited many places. Even I had been preparing for 6 months and I had already given the exam three times. Half band was always the issue. The way my teacher helped me in each section was so convincing. Finally, I got my score more than I expected. Thank you so much Sir.

I was very weak in English, especially for IELTS. When I visited one of the offices for counseling, I was told that I can't get more than 6. I got disappointed. One of my friends suggested me to talk to Masterclass Space. I discussed my concerns with the teacher and he suggested I devote time with the help of his strategy. Finally, I got a great improvement. Yes, it took time but what I think score matters for me, not time. Thanks, MCS.
