About the New SAT Test 2017

The new SAT test is for a total of 1600 marks- 2 sections of math for 800 marks, 1 section of Evidence-based Reading and 1 section of Writing (grammar based), together for 800 marks. As against the old Sat math, the math in the new Sat is relatively denser and focuses on many areas in heart of Algebra such as Functions and transformations, topics which were not there in the earlier SAT. However, the good news is that the students need not work on tedious vocabulary. The negative marking for wrong answers has also been removed. So, the students can attempt all the questions without any apprehension, whether they are sure about the answer or not!
The SAT exams happen six times a year for the Indian students. The SAT scores are valid for two years. While the Old SAT permitted Calculators for the entire math sections, the new Sat restricts the usage of calculators for one section and allows for the second Math section. Between February and April, no SAT tests are conducted in India.

Given the number of topics in math and the focus on grammar and Reading long passages, the students have to prepare systematically, topic by topic and also do timed practice. Hence SAT warrants a sustained preparation and a sincere practice. At Clear Perceptions, we focus not only on the concepts but also on sectional tests and a series of 8 full length papers to fine-tune the children for the SAT. This is a must, as the papers are very long and the test series helps them get used to that level of physical and mental stress.

What is PSAT?

PSAT is yet another test conducted by the College Board. Preliminary SAT is to be taken through the school and a student will be able to register on his own. This test is a miniature version of the SAT and is for a total of 1520 marks for the same topics as in SAT. Generally, students from Standard VIII to Standard X take up PSAT. Taking PSAT helps the students get a feedback on their strengths and weaknesses on skills required for college study. The exam happens in the month of October every year. Clear Perceptions prepares students for PSAT. Classes will be in small batches and after teaching all the individual topics, full length paper practice will be given. You may also visit for further details
