The following is quote about new SAT for American college entrance exam.

Two expert readers will score each student essay on a scale of 1 to 6, with higher scores denoting better performance. A third reader will be consulted if the experts’ scores differ by more than two points. The College Board is considering making copies of the essays available to college admission offices

This change will make SAT more subjective than before. Some people are already skeptic about such change. Personal bias will be a factor in judging student's perfomance. Why such change is needed in the first place? Critics believe there is hidden agenda. Such change will favor certain type of students over others. If you can not win, just change the rule of game.

Who dares to chanllenge conventional view or genius could become anothergenius.
