NOTE: The order of classification is not fixed: the sections can occur in any order.

The experimental section, which is not scored, a lecture section, a written part, or a math section. You do not know which section is experimental. You will know what type of division is, however, since an extra one of that kind.

Because the “bugs”are not drawn from the experimental part – or, to put it more directly, because you are used as guinea pigs to develop the “bugs” – this section of the SAT is often more difficult and confusing than the other parts .

Knowing that the experimental section can be disproportionately difficult, if you badly to a particular section, you can take some solace in the hope that it might have been the experimental section. In other words, not allow a difficult issue for the rest of your performance on the SAT discourage.
