I know this is an old thread. Did Collegeboard change the number of sheets of paper provided for the essay? I thought the test provided three pages for the essay. On the most recent test only two pages were provided. Can somenone clarify how many pages are provided?
Unfortunately, students who have taken the SAT prior to yesterday were unaware of this. Many started writing their essays and didn't realize that the third page was not included until well into their essay making it difficult to inculde a proper conclusion paragraph because they ran out of room. SHAME ON COLLEGEBOARD for not announcing this change at the beginning of the writing section.
