Every year, a large portion of high school students take the dreaded entrance test: the SAT, which, like the ACT, is something many colleges expect from applicants. Some students spend the majority of their high school careers preparing for this test by taking prep courses and learning highfalutin vocabulary. Others just wing it. Regardless of your preference of study, 2016 holds a surprise.
In March, the College Board, which produces the exam, announced it will be revamping the SAT. Although the changes will not take effect until the spring of 2016, many students will find themselves taking a very different test than the current SAT. The College Board will shift the focus of the three areas of assessment: writing, critical reading and math.
