The new SAT has three math sections: 2 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section.

Each section presents both multiple-choice and ‘grid-in’ questions. Questions are presented in order of difficulty, by type. That means that if questions 1 through 8 are multiple choice and questions 6 through 10 are grid-ins, question 1 will be the easiest of the multiple choice questions, and question 5 the hardest; and question 6 will be the easiest grid-in, and question 8 the hardest.
