I don’t know whether you should breathe a sigh of relief, or be totally bummed!

The College Board — the ones who administer the SAT test — said they will not administer the May test, thanks to the coronavirus.

If you have March makeups, you are out of luck, too.

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020 SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled for March 28) are also canceled.

The College Board

They say that people WILL get refunds if they 1) Tested in March, but were unable to get their scores, 2) Their testing centers were closed in March, or 3) They registered for a May test.

The College Board has not yet cancelled their June tests. You can stay up to date at their website, to see information on future closings.

To help students keep their college readiness skills sharp when many schools are closed, College Board and Khan Academy will continue to provide free resources online, including full-length practice tests and personalized learning tools.

The College Board

Administration of the ACT, an SAT alternative, has followed suit, and the company that delivers the ACT has cancelled their April testing.


Just because they have cancelled testing for a few months, doesn’t mean you should take a break from learning. These tests are NOT easy, and you should keep practicing and preparing yourself!


If you are a Senior going through this mess, we are SO sorry, and we are thinking about you!
