SAT Time Breakdown

The SAT is close to four hours long, so when you take the SAT, be prepared to take a test that's longer than most of the tests you've taken in class. To prepare yourself, you'll need to know the SAT time breakdown, so here it is:

SAT Writing

SAT Critical Reading

SAT Math

Experimental Section

The 25-minute Essay section will always come first and the 10-minute Writing section will always come last. All other sections can be any order and will vary not only from test date to test date but also from student to student.
