Starting with the March 2016 test, the College Board has changed the SAT significantly. Very little remains of the old SAT. Vocabulary, geometry, and guessing penalties are gone. Students are no longer allowed to use a calculator for all questions of the math section. The new SAT mirrors the ACT in many ways, but does retain some significant differences.
The SAT’s Language Arts (including Reading, Writing and Language) and Math sections each has a top score of 800. An optional Essay is scored separately.
There also are optional SAT subject tests in Math, Sciences, Literature, U.S. and World History, and Foreign Languages. Wendy Segal Tutoring works diligently with each student to determine which, if any, of the subject tests are appropriate and beneficial to that student’s admissions strategy.
