The SHSAT Revising/Editing section has been cut from 20 to ~10 questions and the reading comprehension section has been expanded to include literary prose for the 2018 Fall test. See http://schools.nyc.gov/Accountability/resources/testing/SHSAT.htm for additional details.

In the grand scheme of things I suspect the net effect of that is going to be a positive one to the extent that as grammar and revising/editing is taught little to none, the fewer such questions on that the better many students will do.

OTOH, yes, the literary passage might give a few kids a whack as well as the poem. However, OTOOH, practicing and using skill test taking strategy might make them moot points.

The more greater concerns IMO is the 5 grid-in math questions. These need to be computed, period.
