A newly redesigned SAT that is more closely aligned with the Common Core State Standards will likely debut in spring 2016, a year later than the College Board initially predicted.

The College Board said last week that officials decided to adjust the schedule for the release of the revised Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test and the revised college-entrance exam to give higher education institutions more time to plan for the new versions, and to allow students to take the revised PSAT/NMSQT before the revised sat.

The newly revised PSAT/NMSQT will roll out in fall 2015, as planned.
