Owned, developed, and published by the College Board, SAT assesses students’ readiness for college life. SAT measures Reading, Writing, and Mathematical skills that are considered critical for academic success in college and is the ultimate doorway to numerous universities and colleges in the United States of America.
Thus the first and the most critical step on your path towards pursuing higher education is to crack the SAT, which is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities as a basis for admission.
For international students (students outside the USA), SAT is offered four times a year in the months of March, May, October, and December, and the good news is that you can appear multiple times for the SAT!

SAT Scoring Blueprint
The SAT uses scaled test scores. The Reading, Writing, and Mathematics sections are scored individually. Every correct answer earns the candidate 1 point. There is no penalty for wrong answers.
The Raw Scores (total number of correct answers in each section) are converted into Test Scores for each section.
(10 to 40)
(200 to 800)
(400 to 1600)
|Math Area Score (200 – 800) + Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Area Score (200 – 800)|
(6 to 24)
|The essays are scored separately and are not a part of the composite score of 400 – 1600.|
An SAT score of above 1400 might help you claim scholarships to study abroad.

The SAT classes at Ednet have been really helpful. Not only were the techniques they taught us really helpful but the teachers were also very approachable and that really helped especially during the last few days.
My experience here at Ednet for SAT has been brilliant. Not only was I given enough prep material and practice papers by Shikha Ma'am, but Ma'am also always helped me with my doubts whenever I had them. The presentations made on each topic really helped me to spot the subtle mistakes and correct them in the writing paper. Shikha ma'am has been really really helpful. Rajesh sir also gave us enough prep material and practice for each individual topic. Rest of my experience for SAT preparation at Ednet has been outstanding!
My experience at Ednet while preparing for SAT and IELTS was great. I learnt many things and gained a lot of knowledge. The mock tests were quite similar to the actual test. The teachers are hardworking and dedicated.
Studying at Ednet was a great experience. I was a really careless person, but Shikha ma'am handled everything magically. Be it taking my classes or be it taking our test, she took so much pain for me and such level of effort is hardly seen anywhere else. She always went out of her way to make sure that I was well prepared for the exam. Her constant support and motivation was everything I needed and she believed in me when no one did, I surely love her for always being there. If it wouldn't have been her, I don't know how I would've managed the SAT.
