In response to the growing concern over COVID-19, College Board has cancelled the SAT test date in May 2020 (May 2nd) and refunds are available. This comes as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the virus through large gatherings.
College Board (the SAT Administrator) will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students in place of canceled administrations.
Currently, there’s no changes for the next test date in June 2020 (June 6th), however it is a Subject Test Date only. Hence some of our current SAT students are using this as an opportunity to get their SAT subject Tests out of the way and look to just focus on the SAT Reasoning Test after the summer once all the new testing dates come in.
So what does it mean for SAT candidates today?
Since the test date is now pushed back, you should take advantage of the extra time to keep your SAT practice up and get the test completed at the earliest possible opportunity. Also, be prepared for a possibility that you may have less opportunities to take the SAT before college application deadline.
For Prep Zone students, your study plan should remain unaffected. If you’d like to review your timeline to better prepare for the June test date (Subject Tests) or the SAT reasoning after the summer, you can schedule an online consultation with a trainer today.
All the best for your study, and stay safe!
