Chris Wills interview KARE 11 TV

College Inside Track President Chris Wills was featured on KARE 11 television discussing the new SAT changes.

KARE 11 TV logoHere are the most significant changes to the test:

  • Starting in 2024, the SAT will be taken online
  • Test takers will be allowed to use calculators for the math section
  • The test will be cut down from three hours to two hours
  • Students will still need to show up to a school or test center to take the exam

“These testing companies are really struggling to stay relevant,” Wills said.

Wills also discusses what impact the changes may have on the ACT and the little understood practice of colleges not requiring test scores for admission, but still using them for awarding merit scholarships.
