SAT Biology Tests Guidance and Smaples for Biology-E and Biology-M

Document Content and Description Below

Biology E/M Questions cover topics emphasized in most high school courses. Because of course differences, most students will find that there are some questions on topics with which they are not fa... miliar. You may not be able to complete all the questions in the time given, but it’s not necessary to get every question correct to get a high score or even the highest score on the test. The first 60 of the 80 questions are common to both Biology-E and Biology-M, followed by 20 specialized questions for each section. How to Choose Between Biology-E and Biology-M  Take Biology-E if you feel more comfortable answering questions pertaining to ecology, evolution, and diversity.  Take Biology-M if you feel more comfortable answering questions pertaining to biochemistry, cellular structure, and processes, such as respiration and photosynthesis. Once you decide which emphasis to take, you need to fill in the appropriate bubble for the test you have chosen on your answer sheet. Important: If you change your mind, you must change the bubble on the answer sheet to match your test; otherwise, your answers to the 20 specialized questions won’t be scored correctly. You’re not allowed to take both Biology-E and Biology-M on the same test date. You can take them on two different test dates. Skills Covered in Both Biology-E and Biology-M  Knowing fundamental concepts; remembering specific facts; demonstrating straightforward knowledge of information and familiarity with terminology (about 30% of test)  Understanding concepts and reformulating information into other equivalent forms; applying knowledge to unfamiliar and/or practical situations; solving problems using mathematical relationships (about 35% of test)  Interpreting, inferring, and deducing from qualitative and quantitative data and integrating information to form conclusions; recognizing unstated assumptions (about 35% of test) Important Things to Note on This Subject Test  Calculator use is not permitted.
