Host: How many sections are in the SAT?
Laura Rheinauer: There are ten total sections in the SAT. The first section is always a 25 minute essay. The last section is always a ten minute multiple choice writing subsection. Now sections 2-7 are going to be 25 minutes each and that could be critical reading, it could be math, it could be writing and sections eight and nine are always 20 minute long sections. That's either going to be the reading section or a math section. The order of your sections could be totally different than the person sitting next you. That's always to avoid the cheating factor.
