SAT Math Strategies Get as many questions correct as possible with as few errors as possible . This strategy may seem obvious, but because the SAT scoring deducts an extra ¼ point for each incorrect multiple-choice answer, it is very important to remember. You will generally achieve “maximum right, minimum wrong” by doing all the questions that are easy for you, attempting the harder questions that you think you know how to do, and skipping the rest . The table below shows how many questions you need to get correct in each of the three math sections, depending on your what your desired score is. Desired Score 20-Q Section 18-Q Section 16-Q Section Total Correct 400 8 6 4 18 500 11 9 8 28 550 13 11 10 34 600 14 13 12 39 650 16 14 13 43 700 18 16 14 48 800 20 18 16 54 Know where you are!
