Changes To The New SAT
As most of you already know, College Board has completely revised the PSAT and SAT. The redesigned PSAT will make its debut October, 2015, but the new SAT will not be administered until March 2016. It is our goal to provide as much relevant information as possible to help answer your questions concerning these changes. We plan to update our site as new information becomes available. We are in contact with colleges and college counselors to ensure that the information we receive is current and reliable.
Our staff is working on a daily basis revising our SAT and ACT preparation materials based upon the current changes.
This summer, we will be offering one-on-one SAT prep for students planning to take the old SAT before March. We will begin preparing students for the new SAT in late fall 2015. All materials will be updated and ready at that time.
There are a couple of minor changes to the ACT; those will be launched in September 2015. We will be using our already updated materials to prepare students over the summer. For more information concerning the changes in the ACT visit www.act.org.
Old vs. New SAT
These changes will have the greatest impact on the class of 2017, which are our rising juniors. They will be the only class that will have the opportunity to choose between the old and the new SAT. These students have the opportunity to take the old SAT four times before the new test is launched in March. Students will have the opportunity to take the old SAT in October, November, December and January.
While we know juniors will have the opportunity to take the old SAT, will all colleges accept the scores from the old SAT in fall 2017? Many experts say that colleges and universities will most certainly take either, but we have not heard a definitive “YES” from the schools we recently contacted. Most “think” that is going to be the case, but I am unable to get a guarantee from any of them. This is simply a cautionary note for students and parents who plan to invest their time and money in focused test prep.
