SAT to drop essay requirement and return to top score of 1600 in redesign of admission test SAT to drop essay requirement and return to top score of 1600 in redesign of admission test

The SAT college admission test will no longer require a timed essay, will dwell less on fancy vocabulary and will return to the familiar 1600-point scoring scale in a major overhaul intended to open doors to higher education for students who are now shut out.

The second redesign of the SAT this century, announced Wednesday, will take effect in early 2016, as today’s ninth graders are sitting for their college admission tests.

Maximum Allowable Scholarship Recipient Award Value

The following new policies have been established regarding those that are selected to receive NSBE scholarship awards. This is an active policy for all scholarships moving forward.

  1. Each scholarship recipient cannot be awarded more than two (2) scholarships in a given program year.  
  2. Members that apply for more than one scholarship that has an internship requirement MUST rank acceptance of scholarship for awarding, if selected as a recipient. (A member cannot accept both internships for a given time period, thus must decide prior to selection which scholarship/internship they would want to accept in priority order.)
