College Board Cancels May SAT, Developing Way to Take AP Tests at Home

The College Board announced Monday that it has canceled the May 2 SAT exam due to the spread of the coronavirus. The March 14 SAT make-up day is also canceled. 

“During this challenging time, our focus will remain on the health and safety of students. We will be flexible, thoughtful, and collaborative in exploring ways to continue to support student learning and provide opportunities to test,” the Board said in a tweet.

The June 6 SAT has not been canceled yet. 

In another statement, the Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) Program is developing a solution that would let students take AP tests at home, depending on what the coronavirus situation is in May. More information will be available by Friday, March 20, the Board says. Currently, AP test days are May 4-8 and 11-15.
