SAT English Literature


Hi there, how hard is SAT subject test for English literature? Is it similar to or a lot harder than the English components in the SAT I?


I think the hardest part about SAT lit is finishing on time. You need to be a fast reader. There are about 7 texts and 63-65 questions overall to complete in one hour. Try one out for yourself and see how you go. In terms of new content, it’s pretty easy to learn the new literary terms. As I said the hardest part is finishing on time. Also keep in mind most of the texts are from another century.
