Level on the SAT
Information provided by www.kaptest.com
Here's an important fact about the
structure of the SAT: Questions within a given section increase
in level of difficulty. In other words,
the questions will get harder as you go along. This aspect of the
test's structure should figure into your test-taking strategy. Remember
easy question is worth the same amount of points as a harder one.
So pick up those easy points as quickly as you can!
the SAT is a paper & pencil exam, feel free to skip around
within a section. Make sure you pick up the easy points before
spending time on the more difficult questions.
Here's another thing
about the structure of the SAT. Correct and incorrect answers
follow predictable patterns. For instance, an obviously correct
answer is likely to be the right answer early in a section, but
a wrong answer choice trap later in a section. In a 30 question
Easy Questions (~1-10): the
"obvious" answer is almost always correct.
Medium Questions (~11-20):
the "obvious" answer is sometimes correct.
Difficult Questions (~21-30):
the "obvious" answer
is almost never correct.
Always make note of
where you are in a section before going for an obvious answer choice
on the SAT. Don't fall into the test maker's traps.
