On Episode 254 of The Prepped and Polished Podcast, Aaron of Prepped and Polished gives you an idea of what to expect when the SAT goes digital in 2024.

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. First we will focus 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.

New Digital SAT Highlights

The College Board has decided, first of all, to make the SAT digital. It 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.
