Emsat Math Practice Questions With Answers

The EmSAT Math test assesses the extent to which the test taker is ready to study mathematics at the college or university level. EmSAT Math practice questions and answers helps students understand the test structure and have real-time experience with the test. It is a computer‐based exam where test sections, questions, and options are randomized. 

The SAT math tests are timed by the computer. It is possible for test-takers to see how much time they have left throughout the test. Check out the table below on the EmSAT Math test to get an understanding of the exam;

Test Duration: 120 minutes.
Questions: 60 questions
Content Areas: Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics
Task Types: Multiple Choice, Multi-select, Fill-in-the-Blank, and Drag and Drop

EmSAT Math Test

EmSAT, the Emirates Standardized Achievement Test, is an exam that students in the United Arab Emirates must take in order to be eligible for admission to the university  Importance of the EmSAT exam is 

The EmSAT Achieve Math test evaluates a student's proficiency in mathematical concepts and problem-solving. The importance of the EmSAT exam relies on its usefulness when seeking admission to universities around the world. An average EmSAT math score is around 600.

The EmSAT Achieve Math test is divided into two sections: the Conceptual Understanding section and the Application section. In the Conceptual Understanding section, students are asked questions about mathematical concepts, and in the Application section, they are asked to solve problems. Now let us take a look at the detailed math score descriptors;

Score Score Descriptors
  • A student at this level has demonstrated sufficient mastery of algebra and geometry to warrant being considered for direct entry into a university-level calculus course.
1300 – 1475
  • A student at this level has demonstrated a solid understanding of algebra and geometry and could engage in pre-calculus or similar courses at the college level.
1100 – 1275
  • A student at this level has demonstrated sufficient algebra and geometry understanding to enter into degree programs that do not require pre-calculus or similar courses at the college level. Additional preparation will be necessary before engaging in precalculus.
900 – 1075
  • A student at this level has demonstrated some understanding of algebra and applied geometry. This student needs additional instruction in pre-college level algebra.
700 – 875
  • A student at this level has demonstrated a limited understanding of a few algebras and applied geometry concepts. This student needs additional instruction and support in basic algebra and numeracy.
500 – 675
  • A student at this level has demonstrated some numerical understanding but a very limited understanding of basic algebra and geometry concepts. This student needs additional instruction and support in basic numeracy, algebra, and geometry.
< 500
  • A student at this level has demonstrated little or no ability to apply basic mathematical concepts at a college entrance level. Students at this level would need to significantly improve their mathematical understanding.
