The New SAT Debuts This Saturday

new satThousands of students will experience some additional stress when taking the SAT this Saturday since it's the first time that the newly designed SAT is being administered. Here are some changes that students can expect:

  • A return to two sections with a total of 1600 points
  • A reduction from 5 to 4 answer choices on multiple-choice questions
  • No more point penalty for incorrect answers
  • No rarely-seen vocabulary words
  • A more curriculum-based test that better measures college readiness

All of these changes make it seem like the test will offer a break from the previous test' demands, but that still remains to be seen. For more information on the new SAT, read this article.
