SAT Test Going Fully Digital, Getting Shorter in 2024

  • Shorter Test Times

    Previously the entire process was about 3 hours for most students. The new test is shortened to about 2 hours, the College Board said.

    “Among the changes: the digital SAT will be shorter—about two hours instead of three for the current SAT, with more time per question.”

  • Shorter Reading Passages

    With a shorter test time period comes shorter reading passages as well. Now, the passages will be shorter and will have just one question tied to each of them.

    The digital test will feature shorter reading passages with one question tied to each, and passages will reflect a wider range of topics that represent the works students read in college.”

  • Calculators Now Allowed in Math Section

    Previously, the test allowed calculators only in some portions. Now, they can be used the whole time, reflecting the likelihood of how students will apply math in the real world.

     

  • Scores Will Come Back Faster

    Scores used to take weeks to come back, and that could make using them on college applications quite difficult. Now, the College Board says they’ll be back in just days.

  • Tests Can Be Taken on Any Compatible Device

    “With the transition to digital tests, College Board is working to address inequities in access to technology. Students will be able to use their own device (laptop or tablet) or a school issued device. If students don’t have a device to use, College Board will provide one for use on test day. If a student loses connectivity or power, the digital SAT has been designed to ensure they won’t lose their work or time while they reconnect.”
