I can´t understand it.
My thinking:
- Any award needs 6 digits

- Time on SATs is limited, Why to waste it trying to understand something

- Other places, such as USA, only use 4 digits from years

- To wrap up, all are advantages

Anybody knows some reason why should we follow using 6 digits?

If there is not a strong reason, I think we should start using 4 digits
