It’s fatigue. Yeah… fatigue. That’s the ticket.
Is Fatigue to Blame for Low SAT Scores?

At three hours, 45 minutes, the newly expanded SAT exam can be a grueling marathon of essays and multiple-choice bubbles, many high schoolers say. Now, with preliminary figures showing a small but noticeable drop in scores this year, some experts wonder if student fatigue is to blame.

And, if they alter the process to take different sections on separate days and the scores don’t improve or drop further, what will be blamed then? A break in concentration perhaps?
