I wanted to notify you of a press release from College Board sent earlier today with news that the May 2, 2020, SAT administration had been cancelled. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. This applies for all administrations globally, US and outside the US. Registered students will receive refunds.
We understand that this action means many international students will not have had an opportunity to take the SAT this Spring. To provide students with the best chance to show their skills and stay on the path to college, we are exploring the potential of adding an SAT administration in June, along with the currently scheduled SAT Subject Test administration in June. We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 globally and will need to further evaluate the situation with the health and safety of students and educators as we get closer to registration deadlines and test dates.
We will be notifying students, test centers, schools, and universities throughout the day and tomorrow. A webpage with regularly posted information about the impact of the virus on the SAT can be found here.
I know many students and schools are also wondering about AP. We are also working through solutions for AP and will communicate the details of these additional solutions to educators and students by March 20. Click on this link for the latest information on AP.
