The New SAT is Here!

Starting from March students are taking an updated version of the SAT that reflects a new curriculum.


New standards are being set for students across the U.S. They will change the way our students learn and think.This affects nearly 2 million students nation wide. So, what has actually changed:

– Scoring structure: the new SAT will return to the 1600-point scale.

– More time for each section: reading, writing, language – 100 min; math – 80 min; essay – 50 min.

– The new SAT requires a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.

– Math now has calculator-allowed and calculator-prohibited sections.

– No more “SAT words”.

– No more penalty for guessing. So, try to answer every question. It can’t hurt.

– The essay is now optional, but it’s still required by many schools.

Want to learn exactly what to expect when you take the new SAT? Ask our SAT tutors. They’ve got everything you need to know to be prepared.
