Students can start on any section they prefer, however, the test must be completed in 2 hours and 30 minutes. The verbal section is broken down into three parts. The recommended time spent on this entire verbal section is 75 minutes. Scrambled Paragraphs - 5 Questions This section requires students to structure a 6 sentence paragraph that has been placed out of order. The first sentence is given, and students must arrange the 5 sentences so it is in chronological order. It is important to note that these questions are worth twice as much as any other question on the test. For every scrambled paragraph that is correct, the student is awarded 2 points on their raw score. There is no partial credit, so, all 5 sentences must be arranged in the right manner to receive credit. This is the section most students find difficulty with. Logical Reasoning - 10 Questions This section requires students to draw valid conclusions from the information provided in the questions. There are specific types of questions in the logical reasoning section such as but not limited to: contrapositive of a conditional statement, deciphering codes and determining positions of objects. Reading Comprehension - 30 Questions This section requires students to read and answer questions. There are 5 passages in this question, each asking 6 questions. Math - 50 Questions The math section tests on algebra, arithmetic, statistics, geometry, probability and word problems. The math section contains 50 questions and the recommended time spent on this section is 75 minutes.
