15. The SAT test has its origins in anti-Semitism.

The presidents of the IVY League universities in the early part of the 20th century became alarmed at the percentage of Jewish students gaining admission. The SAT test was designed to make it difficult for students who were immigrants or from immigrant families to answer questions with themes based on American culture. Now it is designed to help those who can afford tutors and expensive prep courses. There have been many studies that demonstrate success in college is better predicted by grades rather than SAT or ACT scores.
