College board releases new SAT questions

The redesigned SAT won’t debut for another two years, but, beginning Wednesday, students can get a peak at what it may look like.

The college board released some sample questions from the admissions exam. The test will include three sections: reading and writing, math and an optional essay.

In the reading and writing section: one question asks students to read a passage from the economic book “the great reset” and determine the meaning of the words in context.

Math questions will focus on “the heart of algebra,” problem-solving and data analysis.

Overall scoring will drop from 2400 to back to 1600, and there will be no penalty for wrong answers.

The new test will be available to students in spring of 2016.
