A Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) will be administered at Blair for all interested juniors free of cost on the morning of April 10. The free test is part of a county-wide program being piloted at various high schools to grant all students access to college entrance exams.
Instead of measuring the merit of a student based on a single test, schools such as George Washington University, Wake Forest University and Hampshire College have reduced the impact of college entrance exams.
Although the new SAT has good intentions, it won't fix the old SAT’s failure to fulfill the test's purpose-- to provide colleges with a fair and accurate evaluation of students' ability to succeed in college.

Blair juniors and sophomores will be able to choose between three exams to take in preparation for their future college admission tests: the PSAT, the ACT and the newly-offered Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB).
On Aug. 28, MCPS reported that a record number of students took the American College Test (ACT) in Montgomery County last year.
Standardized testers have finally found the way to end cheating. Next fall, SAT and ACT test scores will be sent directly to students' schools along with a picture of the test-taker.
