Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity? See These Stars' SAT Scores

Ninth-graders across America are sighing in relief: In 2016, the SAT exam will scrap its mandatory essay component, tone down its highfalutin vocabulary questions and return to its iconic top score of 1600.

Besides attempting to open up the SAT to students of all backgrounds – scores on the current SAT are highly correlated with family income – the new move helps today's students in another unexpected way.

Once again, it will be very easy for them to compare their own SAT scores with those of their favorite celebrities.

To celebrate the occasion, we've done some research on stars' reported SAT scores, all of which came on the old 1600 test. Besides Oscar winner Ben Affleck, who the New York Times says earned "almost perfect" SAT scores, did you beat any of these celebs?

NEW SHOWSWatch It: Shark (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) James Woods, who is starting to look like the better-groomed twin of Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, gives a performance that's smooth, playful and big – on a different scale than you'll see in most dramatic series. He plays a hotshot defense attorney who suffers a moral crisis and decides to devote his formidable cunning to doing good by taking a job with the L.A. district attorney's office.
