by SAT GrandMaster on March 29, 2021

Curve analysis for SAT May 2016 USA exam:

  • Reading - The overall difficulty is moderate mainly due to the comparatively easier passages. For the first 3 mistakes, 10 points off for each mistake. For the fourth to the eighth mistakes, 10 points off for every 2 mistakes. Given the lower difficulty of the reading section, the curve is normal. 
  • Grammar - overall difficulty is normal, there wasn't any arcane concept being tested. 10 points off for 1 mistake; 30 off points for 2 mistakes; 50 points off for 5 mistakes.
