PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. - March 13, 2014 - PRLog -- The SAT is set to undergo a significant revision in the spring of 2016 (as is the PSAT in fall 2015), with changes to the test's scoring, format, and questions. Most notably, the test will return to a 400-1600 scale, there will be no penalty for wrong answers, and the essay will be optional.

  "Overall, this updated SAT reflects an emphasis on problem-solving instead of rote memorization," said Bill Silverman, president of Key Academics, "as well as a closer alignment to the type of material and instruction seen in high school courses.

    "We're optimistic that the changes will indeed improve the test" the Philadelphia in-home tutoring company founder continued. "Any changes to the SAT that allow students to truly demonstrate their knowledge will meet with our approval.

    "We expect to receive more specific details on April 16, when the College Board will provide a blueprint for the new test and also release sample questions. In the meantime,  has complete details about the changes announced so far."
