Sat Essay – 3 Tips

It’s not unusual to be a little bit excited over writing your SAT essay, but provided you keep many things in mind, there’s no reason why you can’t score highly if doing so. Since this is such an important thing to a lot of of us, I would like to deal with you 3 different things to keep in mind that will help you on test day.

The first thing to keep in mind is that you should always make sure that you write readable and that you write for the reader. Bear in mind, the people the grade the SAT essay papers are attending be going through hundreds of them at the same time and they’ll tend to run together after a while. If you make yours stand out with good calligraphy and by writing in such a way that it will appeal to the reader, you’ve a much better chance of getting a highest score.

Another thing to remember is that the essay is going to be limited, as far as how much writing you’ll be able to do in 25 minutes. It’s important for you to break down the essay into three main parts, the introduction, body and conclusion. The body of the talk shouldn’t branch off into too many subtopics, and it should read logically from the beginning to the end.

Finally, the use of interesting verbs and creative writing will be appreciated by those that are reading the SAT essay. Although this, in itself, won’t reach a high score it will certainly go a long way in making sure that your essay is read exhaustively.

    Hi, i am an SAT tutor and i think the best way to score well on the SAT essay is to write a long SAT essay. Generally the best scoring essays are over 300 words.
