We’ve been inundated with questions about the new SAT!
As many of you know, the SAT is going through some big changes beginning with the March 2016 exam (see our previous blog post for a discussion on some of the alterations). The College Board has let it be known that this first round of the new exam will be “clunky”. It will take longer to receive the results, the scores might need to be curved, and further changes to the SAT might come about based on the outcome.
What does this mean for YOU and preparing for the exams?
We at Pacific Learning Academy have chosen to suspend our SAT/ACT comparison diagnostic exam until we feel the SAT (and their creators, the College Board) have had a chance to work out any issues that will inevitably crop up with the new test. That way, we can alter or redesign our comparison/diagnostic exam based on the results of this first round and provide you and your child with the best possible analysis and feedback.
Once the College Board has finalized all of the changes, we will be offering this service once again to help you navigate the college admissions process. You can look forward to this service being offered again in early Summer 2016.
In the meantime, PLA will be offering full, proctored ACT tests with an after-test analysis/breakdown of sub scores and their interpretations. Contact us for more information on available dates!
