You’ll Still Need a Number 2 Pencil
Taken by over two million students each year, the SAT is often considered the gold standard of college admissions test, not to mention one of the most stressful processes of a student’s high school career.
First introduced in 1926 as a means to measure academic skills students might need for college, the SAT has changed numerous times to reflect the changing requirements of colleges and universities, time limits, and other factors affecting students performances.
In 2014, College Board, the nonprofit that administers the SAT, announced that the test would again be redesigned starting in 2016. Though some of the changes are only slight, they affect the way a student should be preparing for the test.
