Nitty-gritty you must know to score well on the SAT

Planning to take the SAT? The word S-A-T often creates anxiety in the minds of students due to its unpredictability. If you have a dream to studying in one of the best-in-class universities/colleges across the globe then you must take the SAT exam. India’s leading colleges are now accepting SAT scores.

The SAT gives you a chance to guess on the questions asked. You lose nothing by guessing when you do not know how to answer a question, as there is no deduction of marks if your guess is wrong.
