College Board has now cancelled all June 6 SAT administrations as well. They will be providing weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the year, starting in August.

As of March 16, College Board has cancelled the May 2 SAT administration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The March 14 makeup administration, set for March 28, 2020 has also been cancelled. 

In their recent statement, College Board stated that additional testing dates and opportunities will be provided in light of these cancellations. They are also monitoring the status of AP Exams as well as the June 6 SAT administration. 

The cancellation of the May 2 SAT administration impacts students as they will now be forced to take the test in either June or August.

“I took my subject tests before this year so the May cancellation didn’t really interfere with those plans that much. However, March was originally the best time to take the SAT since May interfered with AP tests, June would interfere with finals, and I’d be busy with college applications in August,” junior Andrew Chen said. “Though I’m kind of glad that I have more time now to prepare, I’m going to be busy with other things in June and August.”
