2009 College-Bound Seniors--Total Group Profile Report - More than 1.5 million students in the class of 2009 took the SAT. Of those, 40% were minority students. In 1999 only 29.2% were minority students, reflecting the steady growth of minority participation rates. Hispanic students represent the largest minority group taking the test and now account for 13.5% of all test takers. The number of Hispanic testers over 10 years has more than doubled.
