  近日CB官网又炸,又闹出新闻。不过这次闹腾对大家来讲应该是一个好消息。

  主要内容如下:

  A test date in late August will replace the test date in late January.

  Starting in summer of 2017, the College Board will offer a test in late August, which will replace the one in late January. The other dates(October, Noevember, December,March,May, and June)will not change. On their website, the College Board has released testing dates for the next 3 years, up through the spring of 2019.Previously, they had only released dates one year at a time.

  Here is the link(scroll down to see the new testing dates):

  The College Board plans to make 3-4 official tests per year available as pdfs on Khan Academy.

  Starting with the May7, 2016 SAT, each year the College Board will make 3-4 official tests freely available as pdfs through Khan academy. These tests will be available as soon as scores are released. The College Board previously made test booklets available to students for the old SAT through their Question-and Answer(QAS) for the October,January, and May tests, but this was an add-on service that students could purchase. How the release of the redesigned tests through Khan Academy will impact QAS is unclear. Stay tuned.

  Occasionally, a 20 minute variable(experimental) section will be added to the end of the multiple choice sections.

  When the College Board first anounnced the redesigned SAT, they mentionedthat the test would still contain pretest items (experimental questions), but the implementation mechanics were unclear.

  At the forum, we learned a bit more. Pretests items will be sefl-contained in a 20-minute variable, or experimental, section at the end of of the scored multiple choice protion of the test. According to the College Board, the variable section will be included only on the "occasional" test date and will be announcedahead of time. Furthermore, only those students not writing the optional essay will be given variable section. Performance on this section will not impact students' scores.

  No changes are planned for the Subject Tests.

  The Subject Tests have been and continue to be forgotten children of the College Board. Once again, they have announced that there are no upcoming changes to the Subject Tests and no plans for revisions in the near future.

  概括来讲:

  1.2017年将增加8月考试,2018年取消1月考试。未来三年的考试日期都可以在CB官网查询。需注意:官网显示的是“anticipated”,并不是最终确定的时间,但措辞感觉是板上钉钉,看来8月份替换掉1月份的考试是板上钉钉的事情。

  考试时间如下:

  除了每年三月份SAT科目考试显示为“not available”之外,其他都是“available”。

  2.每年有3-4套题目免费公布在可汗学院,可能会取代QAS;

  3.不参加Essay考试的同学可能会遇到加试,参加Essay考试的同学不会有加试。

  专家看改革:

  每年的五六月份对高二党来说都是十分关键的两次考试,这次又增加了8月份,无疑给同学们成功早申/早录又增加了几成希望。7、8月恰逢暑假,同学们可以充分利用这段时间进行集中突击,培养一些考试技巧、进行语感强化,这样八月份考试时同学们的热知识就得以发挥,考出好成绩不在话下。

  此次调整SAT考试时间,说明面对来自ACT的竞争,College Board已经开始反思并给出了一个截流考生的策略。

  这也算是不靠谱的CB给中国考生的一份新春礼物啦~诺君在这里预祝大家都能考出好成绩!
