College Board Cancels June SAT Tests And Floats An ‘Unlikely’ Scenario: College Admission Exams At Home
The spring wave of SAT cancellations continued Wednesday as the College Board announced it will scrap the college admissions test scheduled for June 6 nationwide because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now comes what the testing organization calls an “unlikely” scenario: the prospect that the high-stakes SAT could be administered online, and at home, this fall.
The public health crisis that shuttered schools from coast to coast in March has taken an extraordinary toll on the education system, including testing for 11th-grade students who are thinking about college.
Without venues for students to gather en masse under the eyes of testing proctors, the College Board this spring has canceled SAT sessions for an estimated 1 million high school juniors who would have been taking it for the first time.
