The SAT is finally going digital! Beginning in the fall of 2023 for PSAT, and in the spring of 2024 for SAT, students will take the test on either a personal or school-issued device. (Students without access to either will be provided a device by the college board). The test will also be shorter—about two hours instead of three.
In other good news, a calculator will be permitted on all math problems. Students may use their own or an on-screen digital version.
The Reading section is also getting a makeover: shorter passages with just one question each! Sounds like this will be a lot easier—even if they keep the Abraham Lincoln speeches.
The College Board is also promising quicker score results. So good news all around! Of course, these changes won’t affect students graduating before 2025. Sorry, sophomores and juniors!
