Changes to the SAT requirement, effective March 2005.

Recently, the College Board voted to significantly change the SAT. The revisions will include:
bulletAdding a writing section with a 25-minute handwritten essay
bulletDropping the analogy portion of the verbal section, to be replaced by shorter prose passages that test reading comprehension
bulletMore higher-level math questions, specifically Algebra II

The duration of the test will be 3.5 hours, a half-hour longer than the current SAT. With the addition of the writing section, a perfect SAT score will be 2400, instead of the current 1600.
