New 2016 SAT Information:
The SAT will be redesigned for 2016. Read below for a glimpse of the anticipated changes to the test.
- The essay will be optional and will be in response to a prompt known in advance (that does not mean a single consistent prompt, it will still vary it will just be known ahead of time each time), and supported by material provided by the College Board.
- The sentence completions will be replaced with "word in context" questions and much of the traditional SAT vocabulary will be used
- The reading and multiple choice writing will be combined into a single 200-800 score, which will be combined with a math score of 200-800 to return to a 400-1600 score range.
- The penalty for wrong answers will be removed
- The math will cover very specific territory and part of it will have to be done without a calculator.
- There will be some science and other data related questions.
Students will first test in the new format with the October 2015 PSAT/NMSQT and will be switched to the new format for the SAT as of spring 2016. They will not have the option to choose.
