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.

Beginning March 5, 2016, test-takers will find changes to the SAT. If students have not taken the exam prior to the new SAT, chances are they will not notice the changes, but these students should consider their study materials, choosing current resources.
 
As The College Board explains, the goal of the new exam is to make it “more focused, clear and useful.”
 
With this goal in mind, the new SAT was revamped with specific changes.
 
This is what’s different.
 

  • It better reflects what you’re learning in class.
  • The SAT vocabulary words are gone.
  • There is no penalty for guessing.
  • It focuses on math that matters most.
  • The essay has been redesigned, and it is optional.

 
Three things that will not change are:
 

  • It will be accepted by almost all U.S. colleges.
  • It is typically taken by juniors in the spring and seniors in the fall.
  • SAT scores and high school GPA are a powerful combination. Used together, there’s nothing better at predicting potential college success.

 
The new SAT will include:
 

  • 4 parts: Reading, Writing and Language, Math, and the optional SAT Essay.
  • 400–1600 score scale
  • 3 hours and 50 minutes with the SAT Essay — or 3 hours without it
  • 4 answer choices
