Here's What The First SAT Test Looked Like
"If a package containing twenty cigarettes costs fifteen cents, how many cigarettes can be bought for ninety cents?" That's 1926 for you.
Smithsonian Magazine has a look at the very first SAT test, which was administered in 1926. At first glance, it doesn't seem as difficult as the test is today, however there was a huge time difference which made the original test much more difficult to finish. Today, test-takers are allotted 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete 170 questions; in 1926, they were given 97 minutes for 315 questions.

Shall we take a look and see how you'd do?
