Should students be allowed to take sections of the SAT exam one at a time?
The College Board's SAT committee meets in New York today to consider that possibility.
The exam takes nearly four hours to complete, and many students say it's a grueling marathon of essays and multiple-choice questions.
The College Board says scores for the incoming college freshman class are down between four and five points on the combined math and critical reading sections.
Full-year numbers are expected to show a "small additional decline."
Some experts wonder if student fatigue is to blame.
A College Board spokeswoman says the board is studying fatigue but doesn't think it's a factor in the lower scores.
However, a guidance counselor in New York says his students reported being exhausted by the SAT.
