How much variance is there for SAT scoring between tests?

March 2, 2011 at 2:28 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The first thing to remember is that the SAT is scored on a curve – that is, you are graded against everyone else taking the same exam. Therefore, unless there are specific things within the exam that you happen to know better than others with comparable ability (ie. you get lucky by studying the correct vocabulary words), there will not be too much variance. That being said, the SAT is all about preparation and practice. The more familiar with the format of the exam and with solving its questions, the better you will do on test day.
