Has the New SAT essay portion changed from the old SAT?

I know that the time has changed to 50 minutes now and that it’s optional, but that’s basically negligible vs the old time. Has the format of the essays changed at all?

Totally. I strongly recommend you go to the College Board and Khan Academy websites to bring you up to date on the major changes.

Yes. The new essay closely resembles the AP Lang rhetorical analysis essay. @naaazabenya
