When you receive your SAT scores, you will receive three scores for the SAT Essay, each on a total scale of 2 to 8.She mentions the open window and explains that her husband and brothers are out shooting but will be back any minute.They exchange small talk about shooting and birds, and Framton iterates that he has been told to have complete rest and avoid ‘mental excitement’, when Mrs Sappleton announces that her husband and brothers are returning home.The theme, characterization, use of vocabulary and humour all contribute to the passage making it a very entertaining piece of writing.
