Die, Puny Humans

So, apparently people are blaming the dip in SAT scores on the fact that it’s now four three-and-three-quarter hours long.

I respectfully disagree. First, if you want a long exam, try my six-hour Property exam which I could have easily spent an extra hour writing.

Second, the real reason for the dip is that this was the first go at the new test, and the test prep companies (i.e. Kaplan & Princeton Review) simply haven’t caught up to the new exam. Wait two years and scores will be right back to where they normally are.
