What about this new SAT?
If you have decided to take it, given the long wait for scores--they won't be available until after mid May (if the College Board delivers on its timeline)--then you should be prepared. The test has changed from top to bottom, and we are ready to help you navigate those changes to your advantage.
Please keep in mind that our recommendation is that students have another test in their portfolio (ACT or old SAT) to back up these new scores. This is a WHOLE new test with ALL new percentiles and the college admissions community is not nearly as comfortable with what new SAT numbers mean as is is with what the old SAT or ACT scores mean. It is best for a 2017 graduate to be prepared to win over her college of choice with strong scores that can be relied upon. And if she can get two sets of those, on the new test and on an old standby, then all the better!
