SAT Mathematics is divided into two levels , Math Level 1 and Math Level 2. (What is the difference between these two ,you can read it here later).

Who Can Take SAT II MATHEMATICS LEVEL 1 TEST

Anyone can take the SAT Math Level 1 test if the person has prepared the topics mentioned below. But it is recommended for Grade 10 to Grade 12 students. But if some student is extra genius in mathematics and really like solving complex mathematics problems then he/she can appear in SAT Math test.

CRITERIA & ELIGIBILITY

There is no particular criteria or eligibility required by the college board like which grade students can take SAT Math Level 1 test. The only requirement is to cover the SAT Math Level 1 course content. After studying/finishing the test topics you can appear in SAT MATH Level 1 test. You just need to pay fees and then you can appear in the test. What are the requirements on test day I’ll explain this shortly. (I’ll explain the whole process from registration to sitting in the exam in separate post.)

EXAM FORMAT

The test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions and is one hour long. The scoring of the Math Level 1 test is based on a 200- to 800-point scale, similar to that of the math and verbal sections of the SAT. You receive one point for each correct answer and lose one-quarter of a point for each incorrect answer. You do not lose any points for omitting a question. In addition to your scaled score, your score report shows a percentile ranking indicating the percentage of students scoring below your score.
