Sixteen-year-old Nicole Tan is a junior at Wissahickon High School in Lower Gwynedd, PA. Nicole stays busy with dance, the robotics team, math club, and key club—but she is also looking toward her future.
Like her classmates in the class of 2017, Nicole will face a unique situation with college admissions testing: the new SAT will first appear during the spring of her junior year, which is a popular time for students to take the SAT. Because of this timing, Nicole wanted to be sure to take the current version of the SAT, so she took it in June following her sophomore year.
“I wanted to take the old SAT. There is more study material out for it, and it isn’t as similar to the ACT as the new SAT will be,” she said.
