    Is it possible to retake the essay, and the essay ONLY, after you take the SATI?

    Thanks

    Short answer: No, you cannot take only the essay portion of the SAT. If you did write only the SAT essay, your score would be very low.

    This also applies to the ACT, if you by accident signed up for the ACT and not the writing portion and your college requires the writing section you must take the test over.

    That'll just make my life more difficult...
    In my opinion, other stuffs (grammar, reading and math) are easy to brush up, but essay needs long period of practice...

    Anybody have any suggestions about the essay part? Or any sample essays that can be shared?

    Here are a couple of links from collegeboard.com that are pretty helpful.

    http://www.collegeboard.com/student/...sat_essay.html

    http://www.collegeboard.com/student/...pracStart.html

    http://www.collegeboard.com/student/.../pracTips.html

    They give you a sample question and essays that would receive certain scores. The other links are strategies and approaches to the essay. Good luck.
