New SAT Not All That Tricky, Say Takers

New SAT Review

The SAT, oops we mean the cat is finally out of the bag. Scores of students who took the new SAT on March 5 are pretty satisfied at the outcome of the test. Thanks to the introduction of the optional essay and no guessing penalty, the redesigned SAT has to some extent mitigated the stress factor involved in the exam. While some students found the going a little tough, most test takers did not find any surprises in the exam.

According to some test takers, the math section was a little challenging with more stress on algebra. However, the new SAT matched the concepts studied in school coursework and was more in sync with the skills required to succeed in advanced courses. Many experts also noted that the new SAT showed a marked improvement over its predecessor.

The new SAT saw the return of the old 1600-point scale along with an optional essay section. The redesigned version also took the emphasis away from unnecessary vocabulary and focused more on evidence-based answers. According to the College Board, more than 463,000 students had signed up for the March SAT.
