More students in the graduating high school class of 2019 took the SAT than ever before, despite a record number of colleges and universities dropping the entrance exam requirement that’s long been a standard part of the admissions process.
More than 2.2 million students took the SAT, which is administered by the College Board, representing a 4% increase over the number of students who took the college entrance exam in 2018. The increase was driven in large part by the growing number of states that allow schools to administer the test during the school day.
With the announcement of more students taking the SAT than ever before, the College Board seems to have fended off a potential blow to the testing company’s bottom line. Most recently, the College Board announced it would begin capturing the socioeconomic profile of students who take the SAT by providing admission officers with bulleted information about a student’s high school and neighborhood.
There are challenges ahead, but the College Board is taking measures to expand access to opportunity and support college and career readiness.
