Overview / Transfert (2013)
The SAT college entrance exam is undergoing sweeping revisions, with the scoring scale reverting to the previously used 1,600 points, the essay becoming optional and penalties for wrong answers being dropped.
Changes to the annual test that millions of students take will also see an end to some vocabulary words such as “prevaricator” and “sagacious” in favor of words more commonly used in school and the workplace.
College Board officials said Wednesday the update — the first since 2005 — is needed to make the exam better representative of what students study in high school and the skills they need to succeed in college and afterward. The test should offer “worthy challenges, not artificial obstacles,” said College Board President David Coleman at an event in Austin, Texas.

yeah wow that’s spot on perfect
I’ll burn that bridge when I get to it…pretty much my life motto.
