College Board Blocks Nonstudents at Saturday SAT

March 1, 2016

The College Board has tightened security for this Saturday's administration of the SAT, which will be the first to reflect recent changes made in the test. Zach Goldberg, a spokesman for the College Board, said that a review of registration lists indicated an "unusually high number" of people registered who appear not to be taking this test for "its intended purpose." The College Board is moving all such people to the May registration period. If someone who has been moved truly needs to take the test in March because of deadlines for admissions or financial aid purposes, Goldberg said, there is an appeal process. The College Board does permit test-prep companies and others to have their employees take the tests. On social media, some test-prep employees who had signed up for the SAT on Saturday were complaining about missing the chance to do so.
