The paper-based SAT has three tests. The three tests that everyone will take are (1) the Reading Test, (2) the Writing and Language Test, and (3) the Math Test.
|Component||Time Allotted (minutes)||Number of Questions/Task|
|Writing and Language||35||44|
Section scores for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and for Math are reported on a scale from 200 to 800. The total score ranges from 400 to 1600.
Digital SAT has two sections - Reading and Writing (RW) section and the Math section.
The digital SAT is divided into four modules: two for the Reading and Writing (RW) section and two for the Math section. The test is adaptive, meaning that the difficulty and scoring of the second module for each section is based on a student's performance on the first module.
Each module of the RW section includes 27 questions, with two of them being "pretest" questions that are not scored and are used for experimental purposes. The pretest questions are mixed in with the normally-scored questions to help test their suitability for future use.
Similarly, each module in the Math section consists of 22 questions, with two unscored "pretest" questions included in each module.
The composite score of the Digital SAT ranges from 400 to 1600 and is determined by combining a student's scores from the Reading and Writing section (scored on a scale of 200-800) and the Math section (also scored on a scale of 200-800).
The total duration of the test, including breaks, is 2 hours and 14 minutes. Overall, the digital SAT provides a more streamlined and adaptive testing experience, allowing for a more accurate assessment of a student's academic potential.

“ Masterclass Space offers a great SAT preparation course. I personally found the math sessions to be very helpful as the practice is very rigorous and more difficult than the SAT, making the actual test's questions seem slightly easier to solve and allowing me to solve them quicker. The reading class also allowed me to improve my concentration during this long section. The grammar and reading classes made both of these sections manageable and helped me improve my score greatly. Overall, Masterclass Space helped me obtain an SAT score of over 1500. ”
“ After learning strategies for the SAT, I was scoring pretty high on tests. I felt that this was the environment I needed to accelerate my growth not just in SAT but in AP Classes like AP Physics and many more. Although Physics is one of, if not the hardest subject to teach and to learn, Masterclass Space’s teachers has made it simple to understand it without the use of complex language and hard to understand analogies, but used simple language and analogies to describe processes after this, I had been doing well in applications of the concepts. ”
“ Masterclass Space provided me with the right guidance to focus on techniques, subject knowledge, and time management. These aspects are critical for SAT success. The dedication of the faculty as well as their sincerity in ensuring students' success is noticeable from day 1. I sincerely thank Aditya sir and other faculty members for their guidance. A big part in my SAT score of 1520 is about their guidance to me. I accepted today the offer from the University of Pittsburgh. I wish all the students the best and thank Masterclass Space! ”

My son found MCS very useful for PSAT prep in the following areas:
1. Math rigour, tips and advice
2. Exhaustive nature of course content, both breadth and depth
3. Ability to maintain time and class discipline among the students on Zoom
4. Organization of classes and format to mirror the exam subsections as opposed to 'general teaching" My son achieved a 220 Selection Index in the Oct 2022 PSAT course.
Tips for parents:
While all students will score higher than the diagnostic test using MCS alone, I noticed that supplementing study with College Board tests, Linkage of previous PSAT/SAT scores to Khan Academy (KA) to elicit AI driven subsection questions from KA, focusing on weak areas identified by KA, and general hardwork of student putting in the hours prior to exam were all helpful in getting higher scores. Lastly, focus on Test time-management and exam techniques e.g. not wasting time on long and hard questions, marking them for later in the test; watching out for misleading answers; understanding secondary meaning of vocabulary were also helpful tips and advice for higher scores.
Thank you MCS.
MCS courses prepare students holistically. The course covers all the concepts in-depth. Along with concepts, all the assignments are discussed. Once the syllabus is over, full length mock tests series starts on every weekend. This is exhaustive preparation which definitely consumes time but produces brilliant results.
Masterclass Space has expert faculties having minimum experience of 3 years. Currently the experience of faculties range from is 3 to 18 years.
If the student fails to match the pace of teacher, he/she can watch the recording of class and ask doubts personally in doubt session. Even if the student is not able grasp, he/she can re join another batch to revise all the sessions again.
The course content of has been updated as per new SAT pattern. In order to cater to digital SAT, we are providing online testing platform to accustom students with digital SAT.
We rather prefer to talk in terms of grade not age to start preparation. English doesn’t need any prerequisite but we expect students to know basic level of mathematics topic as per SAT syllabus. If the student has finished all those topics by 9th grade, he/she can start from 10th grade. Some students start from 8th and 9th grade also if they are in accelerated course structure. If student is willing to start early, he/she can start with English from any grade and do Mathematics later once he/she is comfortable with topics. We can give diagnostic test to judge if student is fit to join the course. Feel free to approach us for diagnostic test.
