Alexis Avila, Founder of Prepped and Polished talks about what we know and don’t know about the new digital SAT exam.

The College Board announced in February 2022 the changes that are coming for the SAT for the year 2024. It will be a pretty big game changer for how students as well as tutors prepare for this college entrance exam. We will cover what we know and what we don’t know about this test, focusing first on a few of the items that are known and then moving on to some speculation and some ideas that we think will be part of the conversation over the next couple of years leading into the full administration in 2024.

The College Board has decided, first of all, to make the SAT digital, which is a very big difference from its original paper-based testing. Prior to COVID, there was a discussion of creating a digital as well as a paper-based test. Unfortunately, when COVID hit, the college board decided to take a back seat on this. But it looks like they’re planning to move it to a fully digital test. So it will be a shorter test, two hours. There will be two sections of the test – a critical reading and writing set of tests as well as the math section. In addition, there will be a calculator allowed for all the math. The passage length and questions for the critical reading and writing set of tests will also change to have only one question per passage.
