New SAT set for March

August 8th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The new SAT to be administered in March for the first time won’t penalize students for wrong answers, will offer them the option of writing an essay and will no longer test for vocabulary words they likely haven’t heard, according to the College Board. This school year’s juniors will be the first to take the redesigned exam, which many colleges still consider during the application process. The College Board presented changes to the SAT in March 2014, when President David Coleman said the new exam would be “more focused and useful, more clear and open than ever before,” according to a news release. One of the key changes is that the SAT will focus on words students consistently use in college and beyond, but not words they probably haven’t heard before and won’t likely hear again.
