According to the information available as of my knowledge cutoff in 2021, the College **Board has announced changes to the SAT that will take effect in 2023**. One of the main changes is that students will be allowed to use calculators for the entire maths section of the test. A graphic calculator will be built into the digital testing app for students who do not have their own calculator. This eliminates the barrier for students and schools with fewer resources.Â

This also means that students would be given rough sheets for all their calculations, but do note that no electronic devices would be allowed in the examination hall/room except the calculator that is provided in the digital app.

SAT also plans to introduce a set of tools through the digital version of the testing app, including a timer, a reference sheet, and a flagging tool to mark the pending questions for review. **The reference sheet will be a summary of the formulas and concepts that students need to know to complete the maths section of the test**. The flagging tool will allow students to mark questions they are unsure of and come back to them later.

Another change is that the exam length will be shorter, the comprehensive passage reading part will be easier, and the test questions will be more adaptive for the students. This means that the test will be more responsive to the student's individual level of knowledge and skills, and will adjust the difficulty of the questions accordingly.
