# Order of Difficulty

Like most standardized tests, the SAT lists problems in ascending order of difficulty. So deciding which questions to skip is easyâ€”skip the last ones.

Note, some SAT sections have subsections. Within these subsections, the problems also ascend in order of difficulty.

For example, one of the writing sections has three subsections: error identification, improving sentences, and improving paragraphs. So if the section starts with improving sentences, then Question 1 will be the easiest and Question 11 (the last of improving sentences questions) will be the hardest. Then Question 12 (the first error identification question) will be the easiest, and so on.
