The College Board made headlines yesterday by announcing major changes to the SAT. Who cares? For the most part, preparation for the test will remain the same. Students will still need to focus on building core math, reading, and writing skills. Students will still need to put in a significant amount of time and practice to score their best since repetition and familiarity with the test questions will remain the key. The College Board is making these changes to become more like the ACT because the ACT has been eating the SAT’s lunch for years now. More students take the ACT every year than the SAT. That news comes as a shock in places like New York and California where the SAT was always the predominant test. The College Board is trying to stop the bleeding and keep the SAT relevant.
