Redesigned SAT

On March 5, 2014 the College Board announced a significant redesign of the SAT.  Click here to read the official announcement of that change on the College board Web site.

The most significant changes will be 1) a focus on more evidence-based and critical thinking; 2) a return to the 1600 point scale; 3) a move to what the College Board calls “relevant words” in the verbal sections; and 4) the elimination of penalties for wrong answers.

The College Board will be sending more detailed updates in April. We will pass those updates along as soon as we receive them. Please note that this new redesigned SAT will not go into effect until March, 2016.
