Grammar Matters on the SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Score

By SAT ACT Test Prep, Writing Training

Don’t let rusty grammar get in the way of a competitive SAT score!

Now that the SAT combines reading with writing in the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Score (EBRW), grammar matters more than it used to. Students who aren’t strong writers may be at a disadvantage when taking the SAT.

At the very least, brushing up on grammar is a quick and sure way for students to increase their EBRW scores.  Over the past few years, I’ve worked with many juniors and seniors from the shoreline area who’ve forgotten much of the grammar they learned in middle school. All they needed to master the SAT writing and language section were a few relatively painless sessions on grammar along with some writing strategies.

Another benefit of learning grammar for the SAT is that this work actually helps prepare college-bound students for the academic work they’ll face in college.
