This just in for the collegeboard:

If you took the SAT I on Saturday, May 3, 2003, you had one of two section orders. Your test was organized like this:

verbal (long reading passage)
math (regular 5-choice questions)
math (QC and SPR questions)
verbal (2 reading passages)
equating (the one that doesn't count toward your score)
math (regular 5-choice questions)
verbal (long reading passage)
OR, like this:

math (regular 5-choice questions)
verbal (long reading passage)
math (QC and SPR questions)
equating (the one that doesn't count toward your score)
verbal (2 reading passages)
verbal (long reading passage)
math (regular 5-choice questions)

Oh no... I was almost certain that I had 3 maths in a row! Is there a chance I somehow messed up the order of recording my sections on my answer sheet? Did anyone else have 3 maths in a row at all?

And which reading passage was last for the first form?

By Qu1kslvr (Qu1kslvr) on Tuesday, May 06, 2003 - 07:33 pm: Edit

Andrew the last reading section for the first form was Napster

Thats what I thought, but it says that the double passage was earlier in the test! Wasn't napster a double passage?

I had the verbal first, and my verbal passages were like this:

Neurologist
Black women/Dreams
Group psychology (experimental)
Napster

By Andrew123s (Andrew123s) on Wednesday, May 07, 2003 - 12:19 am: Edit

So why does it say the double passage was earlier in the test? It says a long passage was the last verbal section on both forms... wasn't Napster the double passage?

By Jason817 (Jason817) on Wednesday, May 07, 2003 - 12:21 am: Edit

napster was the double passage

By Andrew123s (Andrew123s) on Wednesday, May 07, 2003 - 12:26 am: Edit

So I guess the college board posted incorrect info.

By Mattymatt (Mattymatt) on Wednesday, May 07, 2003 - 11:13 am: Edit

2 reading passages doesn't mean double passage. There was a section with two, unrelated passages.

I think they incorrectly named the double passage "long passage"
