 When to Begin Preparing for the SAT

In general, Boston area students take the SAT exam in the spring of their junior year. While many students begin formal SAT Prep as early as grade 10, on average, students begin working approximately 5 months prior to their initial exam date.

About the SAT

First introduced in 1926, the SAT is a standardized test used for college admissions and is intended to accurately gauge a student’s preparedness for college. Test scores are also used for awarding student scholarships and grants.

The SAT is owned and governed by the College Board, a not-for-profit organization.

Besides the standard SAT which covers three general subject areas (Math, Reading and Writing), there are 20 optional SAT Subject Tests that offer students the opportunity to demonstrate specific skills to their colleges of interest. 

2016 SAT Changes

The College Board radically changed the SAT in 2016.

Changes include:

  • The exam reverted back to a 1600-point scale.
  • Students are required to cite evidence supporting their answers in the reading and writing portions.
  • SAT vocabulary words are no longer used as they once were.
  • Students are not able to use calculators on some portions of the math exam.
  • The essay portion of the SAT is now optional and scored very differently.
  • The new SAT takes 3 hours to complete.
