NEW YORK – No more number two pencils. The College Board has announced the SAT is shifting to an online format.
The standardized college-entrance exam is going digital for American students in 2024 and international students in 2023.
It will still take place in a proctored setting, but students have to bring their own computer.
If they don’t have one, The College Board can give them a loaner for the day.
The changed format shortens the test from three hours to about two.
The College Board says the new exam uses adaptive learning, to reduce the time students spend answering questions that are too easy or too hard.
Students will also get their results back within days, compared to weeks with the previous format.
