Known is better than the unknown
What if you wake up on the day of your exam only to realize that the exam has been deferred to a later date? While the initial feeling might be that of happiness, how would you feel if you come to know that the exam pattern has changed unimaginably? Nervous , right? Well, you might feel anxious anytime soon if you are planning to study abroad and attempt SAT as College Board has recently officially announced the launch of the ‘Redesigned SAT’.
Now, while the new version of SAT might be more focused and accurate, what might give you the jitters is the mystery that surrounds the ‘all-new SAT’ right now.
So, why should you attempt the SAT as per the current pattern? Below are the reasons:
Since the current SAT exam pattern has enough study material and available resources, you don’t have to wait for the new ones to be launched and can start your practice for the May/June SAT exam
It is presumed that the ‘Redesigned SAT’ would be more logically oriented. So some students with a theoretical bent of mind might face difficulties in cracking the new SAT.
It is also apparent that the Critical Reading section of the new SAT pattern will have newer reading passages taking more topics into consideration. Hence, students who have already practiced reading passages must undertake the current SAT exam.’
Since every University’s SAT requirements are different and varying, once the new SAT is launched, the Universities might take some time to reformulate their SAT requirements as per the new pattern which might make the prospective students more curious or confused
Students who have already attempted SAT before and wanted to make another attempt in the near future must consider the current pattern as their level of preparation is already good with the existing course curriculum of SAT
Mnemonic Education suggests all the prospective students to undertake SAT at the soonest, preferably in the months of May or June, so as to receive your scores in the existing SAT pattern. Since the scores would be valid for five years, you don’t have to worry about retaking the new SAT and concentrate on your boards or final exams. So hurry!
