This is a key tip if you struggle with time pressure on the SAT. If you’re having trouble with a question, skip it and move on before you waste too much time. Lingering on hard questions could cost you easy points if it means you’re not getting to questions later in the section.
For the Math and Reading sections, don’t spend more than a minute trying to figure out each question.
For the Writing section, don’t spend more than 30 seconds.
Circle any questions that you skip so that they’re easier for you to pick out when you go back through the section. You might find that after you’ve answered the rest of the questions, you’ll feel less pressure and be able to think more clearly on questions that initially stumped you.
If you still can’t figure out the answer, take a guess! The new SAT has no guessing penalty, so it’s always better to guess than to leave a question blank.
