The SAT – for non-US readers – is a multiple-choice test taken in the United States for university admission. Because it’s so widespread, it’s kind of an object of cultural horror. “I actually did the ACT, but when 95 percent of my friends did the SAT, I remember they were crazy with stress and spent nearly 12 months preparing with private tutors and tutorials,” said MSCHF founder Daniel Greenberg. The edge

So, Greenberg and his colleagues created the MSAT. Registration is open for the rest of the week and the test itself will take place on Saturday, March 5 at noon ET, with all participants playing against each other live from their computers. The winner will take home all the entry prizes, and here’s the kicker: cheating is encouraged.

According to Greenberg, this chaotic arrangement reflects the principles already embodied by the SATs. “Admission to college is already a competition, but instead of winning money, a significant portion of the players win a mountain of debt,” Greenberg says. Plus, college admissions are mostly about cheating — rich parents, inheritances, and sports are much more likely to get you to Harvard than your test scores. So the MSAT is all about cheating!

The MSAT includes all the regular elements found in the SATs, with reading, writing, and math sections, as well as an optional essay. MSCHF says it took its questions from practice versions of the SAT, but modified it so that no one could find the answers beforehand.

If you’ve never heard of it, MSCHF itself is an art collective that’s made a name for itself staging these kinds of viral stunts. Previous “drops” from the company include a squeeze chicken bong, custom Nike shoes designed in collaboration with Lil Nas X and reportedly made with a single drop of blood, and a project that will allow people to control a Boston Dynamics robotic dog. , armed with a paintball gun across the internet. How does MSCHF make money? Well, it’s not clear. It has VC funding and the credentials to walk into any ad agency that likes it, but the company is adamant that it isn’t interested in creating ads.

Meanwhile, we get projects like the MSAT. Read more about the competition, including entry requirements and game rules, here. Good luck.
