SAT scores for the most recent high school graduating class are at the lowest level in nearly a decade.
This is the second consecutive year that's been the case.
The college board says the lower results are because more students are taking the test.
A record number of more than one and a half million students took the test this year.
That's nearly 30% more over the past decade.
40% of those who took the test this year were minority students.
36% of those tested were the first in their families to go to college.
