If you've been to the College Board SAT website, you may have noticed there's lots being written about the "New SAT." Many test prep makers are changing all of their materials for the New SAT and calling what you are studying for the "Old SAT."
Are you in trouble? Did you miss something? Are you studying for the wrong test?
Hopefully by now you have taken (or at least registered to take) the SAT and you've got your eye on a few universities to apply to in the United States. We've said it time and time again, the easiest way to apply to a lot of universities at the same time is to use the Common Application. You can apply to more than 500 universities using one application (they even added 60 new universities this year!).
Although some universities have supplements that require you to write more essays, there are many good universities that don't require extra work, which means you can do the application once and then keep applying.
