Top Trenders: Preparing for the SAT? New Exam Details Released

The test will include three sections: reading and writing, math and an optional essay.
Here are your Top Trenders for Thursday, April 17th!

NUMBER 5 - PAUL WALKER'S BROTHERS TO FINISH MOVIE SCENES
Paul Walker's family is stepping in to finish his role in "Fast & Furious 7." His brothers, Caleb and Cody, are filling in for the remaining scenes he didn't get to complete. The producers say resuming filming was "the only choice" and what Paul would have wanted. Walker's dramatic scenes were completed before his death, but some action sequences were unfinished. The movie was supposed to be released this summer, but Universal pushed it back to April 10, 2015.

NUMBER 4 - NEW SAT EXAM DETAILS
The redesigned SAT won't debut for another two years, but students can get a peek at what it may look like. The College Board released some sample questions from the admissions exam. The test will include three sections: reading and writing, math and an optional essay. Overall scoring will drop from 2400 to 1600 and there will be no penalty for wrong answers. The new test will be available in spring of 2016.

NUMBER 3 - BOSTON BOMB HOAX SUSPECT
The man arrested in a bomb hoax at the Boston Marathon finish line appeared in court Wednesday. Kevin Edson, 25, is facing felony charges including possession of a hoax explosive device and making a false bomb threat. He was arrested Tuesday near the race finish line. No explosives were found, but police say Edson's backpack contained a rice cooker.

NUMBER 2 - SOUTH KOREAN FERRY SEARCH
The effort to find and rescue passengers on the sunken ferry in South Korea becomes more critical with each passing day. Chilling water temperatures, swift currents and low visibility complicate efforts to locate victims and survivors. Although the exact number of passengers aboard is unclear, over 300 were high school students. The ferry sank within two hours of the first distress call.

NUMBER 1 - JEWISH CENTER REOPENS
The parking lot of the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas was full Wednesday for the first time since three people were gunned down in what investigators have called a hate crime. Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, has been charged with murder in the Sunday shootings. Around the center, police have increased patrols. The center will hold an interfaith prayer vigil this morning for the victims and their families.
