The new SAT will begin on March 5, 2016. Are you ready to ace it?
Tackle the exam with our SAT Preparation course, which has been updated to match the new test.
First, take a look at what the test will include and what changes you should expect.
The new SAT will include four parts (reading, writing and language, math, and the optional SAT Essay), have a 400-1600 score scale, last 3 hours and 50 minutes with the SAT Essay (or 3 hours without) and contain 4 answer choices. Different from past tests, the updated test will better reflect what students are learning in class as well as will not include SAT vocabulary, not penalize for guessing, focus on math that matters most and allow the essay as optional.
While the new SAT will be more focused, clear, and useful, we encourage students not to take it lightly and to thoroughly prepare for the exam.
