Students can no longer take the paper SAT, as it is being completely replaced by the new, digital version in March 2024. The digital SAT is shorter, adaptive, and involves less reading:

  • The digital SAT is only offered on the computer
  • The digital SAT is 82 minutes and 56 questions shorter than the paper SAT
  • The digital SAT contains 2 standard modules and 2 adaptive modules which can be harder or easier

How does the adaptive module look?

All students work the first module of each test, but the second module is either hard or easy depending on how well they scored on the first module. Students need to answer about 65% of the first module correctly to get to the harder module. Failure to make it to the harder module will cap a student’s potential score to about 550/800.
