by SAT GrandMaster on January 15, 2021

The SAT 03 October International Test used the repeat paper from one of the less known Aug 2020 US tests. 

Curve analysis for SAT October 2020 International exam:

  • Reading - The overall difficulty is easy for reading section. Expect to deduct 20 points for the first 2 mistakes. 
  • Reading/Grammar - The reading and grammar section is relatively hard this time. Questions such as "introduce the paragraph" and "summarize the paragraph" frequently appeared. The curve isn't any more forgiving. 
  •  Math - Math is relatively easy. There are linear equation sets and basic questions about slope and y-intercept. Expect a normal curve.
