The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a standardized test used widely for admissions into universities
abroad. Though mainly used for US colleges, universities in many other countries also use SAT scores.
Even in India, many colleges have started accepting SAT scores for admission. Though many
universities in the US have gone test optional, the SAT continues to be one of the main factors for
admissions to majority of universities.
The best thing about classes here is that it’s very personal
I took classes here with Saraswati ma’am for the new SAT, and was able to get a score of 1530 under her guidance. The best thing about classes here is that it’s very personal. The batch sizes are small, and Saraswati ma’am makes sure to focus on where you need help, adjusting your preparation to your personal strengths and weaknesses. This I feel sets it apart from other SAT or ACT classes.
SAT has now moved to a digital format from the earlier pencil/paper format. The digital SAT uses
multi-stage adaptive testing for a more accurate assessment.
While the total score remains at 1600, the test has been made shorter. SAT comprises English
(Reading and Writing) and Math. The English section has two modules to be completed in 64 minutes
and Math too has two modules, to be completed in 70 minutes. In between the English and Math
modules, there is a break of 10 minutes. The total test time is 2 hours and 14 minutes for both, SAT &
The two modules of both English and Math have equal number of questions and the student can
navigate forward and backward within a module. When the time expires, it will move to the second
module. While the first module in both sections contains a broad mix of easy, medium and high
difficulty questions, the difficulty level in the second module will depend on the students’
performance in the first module.

Extremely well planned approach to teaching as well as lending a hand with applications. Would highly recommend CP to anyone looking for a smooth and timely application process.
The SAT exams four times a year for the Indian students. The SAT scores are valid for two years. Sat happens in March, May, October and December in India. Since the pandemic started in 2020 , additionally the SAT happens in August too.
How to prepare for SAT?
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 10 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.
SAT classes at Clear Perceptions Mumbai
I did my SAT preparations at Clear Perceptions with Mrs Saraswathi. Despite the long travel distance for me, it’s something I’m glad I did. The class sizes were small, and she personally helped each student in his/ her area of difficulty. She took a series of SAT practice tests in the last month which not only helped me adjust to the pattern of writing the test, but also built my confidence. I would recommend this class to anyone who’s thinking about joining.
