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.
