Updated: May 14, 2022
If you're looking to get into the best colleges in the world, you’re not alone; there are plenty of others out there who share your aspirations! However, as we all know, SATs can be tricky and often lead us to feel like we’re never going to make it because everything is so hard. But don’t worry! I’ve got you covered with this post that will tell you absolutely everything about the new SAT exam coming up soon. So sit back and enjoy reading this helpful guide!
Starting March 2023, digital SAT test will still take place in a proctored, in-person environment. Students will still take the tests at school or at a testing center. The test will take place on a laptop or tablet through an exam application developed by the College Board. This application will need to be downloaded to the device prior to test day. Students can use personal or school-issued devices. Let’s understand the significant changes when compared to its previous versions pictorially.
The burning question which arises is, “How do these changes affect students?”. Whether these changes apply to you varies depending on your grade level. Below I have provided more specific guidelines for each group of current and soon-to-be high school students.
Class of 2022 (Current 12th Graders)
These changes will not impact students who attend high school in India or international countries except the USA. and will graduate in the Class of 2022. They’ll graduate before the SAT test transitions to the new digital format.
Class of 2023 (Current 11th Graders)
For Indian or other international students except the USA, these changes will only affect Class of 2023 high school students who decide to take the test during the spring of their 12th grade year.
Class of 2024 (Current 10th graders)
Starting in spring of 11th grade, they will take the new digital SAT test.
Class of 2025 and 2026 (Current 8th and 9th graders)
This class will be the first to be impacted by a purely digital testing environment for the SAT test. Since the test content will remain consistent, students still need to acquire and practice maths and verbal skills.
