大学委员会不再提供SAT学科考试(SAT2)和SAT考试的作文部分
COLLEGE BOARD 大学委员会
January 19, 2021 2021年1月19日
As students and colleges adapt to new realities and changes to the college admissions process, College Board is making sure our programs adapt with them. We’re making some changes to reduce demands on students.
因为学生和大学都在适应大学申请过程中的新的现实状况和变化,大学委员会也正在确保我们所提供的项目与时俱进。我们正在做出一些调整来减少对于学生的要求。
We are no longer offering SAT Subject Tests™ in the U.S. Because SAT Subject Tests are used internationally for a wider variety of purposes, we’ll provide two more administrations, in May and June of 2021, for international students.
我们不再在美国本土提供SAT学科考试。因为SAT学科考试在国际上仍然被用于多种用途,我们对国际学生仍然会提供两场SAT学科考试,在2021年的5月和6月。
Students currently registered for an upcoming Subject Test in the US. will automatically have their registration canceled and fees refunded.
在美国已经注册了即将开考的SAT学科考试的考生,其考试将会自动被取消,并且考试报名费会自动返还。
Students who are currently registered for, or plan to register for, an upcoming Subject Test outside the U.S. can still test through the June 2021 administration. Students who no longer want to take Subject Tests can contact Customer Service to cancel and receive a refund.
在美国之外已经报名参加SAT学科考试的考生,或者计划报名参考的考生,仍然可以在2021年6月以前(含6月)参加考试。如果考生不想参加学科考试了,他们可以和客服联系,取消考试并且得到退费。
We’ve reached out to our member colleges and they’ll decide whether and how to consider students’ Subject Test scores. Students should check colleges’ websites for the most up-to-date information on their application policies.
我们已经和各个大学取得联系,他们将决定如何对待已有的SAT学科考试的成绩。学生应该登录大学的官网去查询有关于申请政策的最新信息。
We will also discontinue the optional SAT Essay after the June 2021 administration.
在2021年6月之后,我们不再提供原来能选考的SAT作文部分。
Students who are currently registered, or plan to register, for an upcoming SAT with Essay will still be able to test through the June 2021 administration. Students who prefer to cancel the optional Essay portion of their SAT can do so in their online account, with no change fees, until the registration deadline.
现在已经报名注册了SAT考试(含作文部分)或者计划参加有作文项目的SAT考试的考生,仍然可以在2021年6月份之前考SAT的作文。希望取消作文部分的考生可以在报名截止日期之前,在他们的online账户里取消作文部分,相关考试报名费并无更改。
After June 2021, the Essay will only be available in states where it’s required as part of SAT School Day administrations. Students scheduled to take the SAT on a school day should check with their school about whether the Essay will be included.
在2021年6月之后,只有在一些州才能参加SAT作文考试。这些州的SAT在校考试对于作文部分有所要求。学生应该和自己的学校联系,以便于确认在校的SAT考试是否包含作文部分。
Writing remains essential to college readiness and the SAT will continue to measure writing and editing skills, but there are other ways for students to demonstrate their mastery of essay writing, and the SAT will continue to measure writing throughout the test. The tasks on the SAT Reading and Writing and Language sections are among the most effective and predictive parts of the SAT.
写作对于成功地攻读大学课程仍然是密不可分的一个部分, 而且SAT会继续测量学生的写作和编辑技能,但是有其他的方式可以让学生展示他们对于essay写作的精通程度,而且SAT贯穿以其考试过程仍旧会衡量学生的写作能力。SAT的阅读和语法部分就是最为有效和有前瞻性的考试内容。

Many colleges already use AP course participation and exam score as indicators of a student’s ability and interest in a particular subject area. And colleges also have access to information about student performance in key subject areas through their SAT scores, high school transcript, course selection, and other measures. Check directly with the colleges you plan to apply to for alternative ways to strengthen your applications.
我们现有的AP课程会继续丰富和拓展,这些会让学生通过有挑战性的课程来展现他们的能力。很多大学已经接受AP课程和成绩来作为衡量学生在某些学科内能力和兴趣的指标了。而且,大学可以通过学生的SAT的分数、高中成绩单、选课情况和其他的一些情况知道学生在核心课程上的能力。请与你的申请大学联系,获悉能够强化你的申请的其他方式。
