The syllabus for the SAT exam includes introductory courses in English and Mathematics that a student has already studied during their school years. The test measures the student's reading, writing, and mathematical skills. Here is a brief description of the syllabus:
English is divided into two sections (a) Reading and (b) Writing
|Reading||In the reading section, you will get 27 short passages to read and answer within 32 minutes. Each passage has 25-150 words. So, every question has a separate text associated with it. Passages can be from literature, history or social studies, humanities, and science. Reading passages and answering all the questions within 32 minutes requires a lot of practice.|
|Writing||In the writing section, you will be given several short passages and solve multiple-choice questions based on these paragraphs by identifying errors, grammatical usage, punctuation, word choice, sentence structure, etc. The applicant has to answer 27 questions in 32 minutes. Each paragraph will have one question, or a pair of paragraphs will have only one question.|
Here are the content domains and the number of questions you can expect in English modules of Digital SAT.

|Information & Ideas||12-14 Questions|
|Standard English Conventions||11-15 Questions|
|Expression of Ideas||8-12 Questions|
The Mathematics section evaluates the ability of a candidate to solve mathematical problems by using calculators, analyzing data, and understanding reasoning problem questions. Generally, questions in the mathematics section are from four sectors:
The question might be a multiple-choice or student-produced response (fill in the blanks). On the rough estimation, 75% will be MCQs, and the rest, 25%, will be SPR. Mathematics is divided into two sections (a) module-1 and (b) module-2.
|Advanced Maths||13-15 Questions|
|Advanced Maths||5-7 Questions|
|Geometry and Trigonometry||5-7 Questions|
Calculators are available for the entire mathematical section, and candidates can use calculators to solve the questions.
