Having been a recent victim of the SAT, it was surprising to hear of the change in format to the test. I have made and heard countless complaints in the past about the irrelevance of the SAT and it seems College Board is finally taking the initiative to modify the test.
You might think that as a college student constantly apprehensive about his financial future, I would have little to no interest in the recent news that the format and content of the SAT will soon be changed. Yes, that’s right, the SAT, that ominous name that filled many of us with fear of words like harangue and cacophony, will finally abandon its love of the abstract, never used parts of our lexicon. I was pleasantly surprised by this knowledge and the information that the test will also abandon the essay and 2400-point-scale and will revert to the 1600-point-scale, as it was once measured by . In addition, the exam will no longer penalize its takers for guessing incorrectly.
