Revamped SAT Returns to 1600-Point Scale
The SAT college admissions test will undergo major changes according to the College Board's announcement on Wednesday. The redesigned test's vocabulary will be more relevant, its math will draw from fewer topics and points will not be deducting for incorrect answers. The SAT will also return to a 1600-point scoring scale and present the essay section as optional and separately score. College Board President David Coleman also announced an initiative to give "every income-eligible SAT test-taker four fee waivers to apply to college." College Board will be partnering with Khan Academy to provide free study prep materials to every student.
