About the SAT with Essay

  • The SAT with Essay will take approximately one hour longer than the SAT.
  • It’s your choice. You decide whether or not to take the SAT with Essay.
  • The SAT Essay is scored separately from the SAT and does not impact your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score.

 

Why Take the SAT with Essay?

  • The SAT with Essay is a lot like a typical college writing assignment that asks you to analyze a text.
  • Some colleges may specifically require it as a part of the admission process (we recommend that you confirm admission policies with your school of choice).
