College Board Adds New “Adversity Score” to SAT Exam

Getting a high enough score on the SAT to be admitted into the university of one’s choice has always been a difficult task. Now, though, this task has just become all the more challenging for those who are deemed to have not faced enough adversity in their life.

In an attempt to level the playing field, a new “adversity score” has been added to the SAT. Unlike affirmative action, this new adversity score will not directly take race into account. However, it will attempt to take into account a number of other factors designed to put a number on how much adversity a student has faced in their life.

While it is understandable that a person who faces severe challenges in life would have a more difficult time scoring high on the SAT than a person who has lived a life of ease, the SAT is designed to select the best and brightest. No matter what precedes the taking of this test, higher scores means that a person is better prepared to excel at the highest levels in college and beyond.

This new system doesn’t help colleges select the best, brightest, and most prepared students. Michael Knowles breaks it down below.
