SAT/ACT Updates

We all want to know what is going to be happening with our SAT’s and ACT’s, especially juniors who have not had a chance to take any yet. The College Board and ACT provide clarity on how they plan to proceed with the coronavirus implications of the 2020 school year. 

As far as SAT’s go, the SAT test and SAT subject tests that were set to be administered on June 6, 2020 were canceled. The College Board reports that “If it’s safe from a public health standpoint, we’ll provide weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new administration on September 26 and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7, and December 5. Students can register for these administrations starting in May. We’ll contact students directly during the week of May 26 to provide an exact date. Eligible students can register with a fee waiver. For each administration, we’re preparing to significantly expand our capacity for students to take the SAT once schools reopen. We’re calling on our member schools and colleges, as well as local communities, to provide additional test center capacity so every student who wants to take the SAT can do so.”

There has even been talk of an SAT administered online.  Juniors without SAT scores and individuals that already registered for June will have early access for August, September and October registration. 

The ACT canceled their spring dates as well due to the Coronavirus situation, but plan to offer make-up test dates to students that have already registered and students that plan to take them. The scheduled April 4th date has been moved to June 13th. Students that do not wish to reschedule will receive a refund.
