Continued Problems With Taking the SAT

November 3, 2020

Of 312,000 students registered for the Nov. 7 SAT and SAT Subject Tests, 96,000 registered students are unable to take the test because of testing center limits or closings, the College Board announced. Of test centers initially scheduled to administer the tests, 70 percent are currently open for November, though some have reduced capacity; 15 percent of open centers are at capacity; and 30 percent of centers announced they are closed.

The College Board has had difficulty with test centers since the pandemic broke out. Of the 334,000 students registered to take the SAT on Sept. 26, 183,000 were not able to take the test. And of the 363,000 registered to take the SAT or the SAT Subject Tests on Oct. 3, 154,000 were unable to do so.
