Major changes are just around the corner for the SAT exam

  • 2005 Major alterations to the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) saw the College Board removed portions of the verbal section that had traditionally proven difficult for some students. The Board also added an 800-point essay segment to the exam, giving it a new total point value of 2400.
  • 2016 A new round of changes will see the maximum score on the SAT exam return to 1600, along with a host of other changes that the College Board once again hopes will make college more-accessible to graduating high school students. In addition to dropping the top score, the College Board will also offer free SAT preparation materials and give four college application fee waivers to anyone who takes the test. source
