The College Board announced Wednesday that the SAT exam would undergo a major overhaul in 2016 to focus more on college readiness. Among other things, the exam no longer will include the penalty for incorrect answers, make the essay optional and return to a 1,600-point grading scale rather than 2,400.

"Our intention in this partnership is this will be the best thing out there," said Salman Khan, creator of Khan Academy.
