The Brand New SAT

Brand New SAT

From Spring 2016, we will see an all-new SAT! Why is the College Board making changes to a set system that students had grown into and into, one that trainers were more than comfortable with? Many reasons have been put forward by the College Board and others assumed by those associated with the SAT in some capacity. But in sum, the Redesigned SAT mainly focuses on increasing the College readiness of candidates to check students on particular skills essential for College.

The major change is that the Essay will be optional, which makes the score out of 1600, and if attempted, the Essay will be scored from 2 to 8. Kindly go through the following tables.
