SATS canceled through June

Weeam Boumaza, Staff Writer

College Board recently announced SATS are canceled through June.

According to their announcement: “To keep students safe, and in alignment with public health guidance and school closures across 192 countries, we will not be able to administer the SAT or SAT Subject Tests on June 6, 2020. Students can transfer their June registration to a 2020-21 administration in late May when registration opens for 2020-21 test dates.

“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.”

This crucial step college board has taken to keep its standardized test participants safe has left several students across the nation angry. Although their means of payment were re-funded to them, students are still panicking at the next steps to take in terms of rescheduling.

However, even though students are in a panic over the next steps to rescheduling and await new updates from the College Board on the next steps, sites like the Princeton review are assuring students that everything will be all right regarding rescheduling, etc.

The Princeton Review states: “If your SAT was canceled or postponed, know that you are in good company. Thousands of registrants had their exams canceled… and then their makeups canceled…and then their makeups-to-the-makeups canceled. The changes have come quickly, as governments have worked to slow the spread of COVID-19.”

College Board has taken several helpful and resourceful steps in order to make this experience as smooth as possible for students across the nation.

Here are the following rescheduled dates for the next SATs:

Fall 2020 SAT Dates

  • August 29
  • September 26
  • October 3
  • November 7
  • December 5

However, if you’ve already registered for selected tests, your rescheduled date can be easily registered.

According to the College Board: “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.

“Students can get early access to register for August, September, and October if they’re:

  • Already registered for June
  • In the high school class of 2021 and don’t have SAT scores.”
