Following are some of the key ways in which the SAT will change:

 

  • Questions on the test will be more grounded in the real world and relate directly to the kind of students will do in college and in their careers.

  • The SAT will narrow its focus to key concepts that are deemed critical for college success.

  • The exam will return to being scored on a 1,600-point scale, rather than 2,400 points.

  • Students will no longer be penalized for wrong answers.

  • The essay portion of the test will be optional and scored separately.

  • The exam will last three hours, with an additional 50 minutes for the optional essay.
