With the recent removal of SAT Subject Tests, the essay portion on the SAT, and modification to AP Exams as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, students are scratching their heads on how to interpret these changes and what the future of standardized testing will look like. Therefore, to address common questions and concerns of high schoolers, this podcast episode was created to discuss adaptability to standardized testing. This is the first episode of a three-episode series on how high school students should adapt to the current COVID-19 pandemic, hosted by the Irvine-Tustin Chapter.
