Hundreds of SAT test takers can thank the weather gods for an epic snow day cancellation—or curse them for another month of anxiety—as dozens of testing centers have canceled the exam scheduled for Saturday due to winter storm Jonas.
The snowstorm, which is expected to drop close to a foot of snow (or more) along much of the East Coast, has caused Saturday’s SAT test to be rescheduled at most testing locations in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Most of have posted a make-up date for Feb. 20.
Most of the decisions were made Thursday night or Friday morning, but the College Board, which manages the SAT, says that the decision about whether to close is made by local testing centers, so updates could still be coming in. If you live in a state with several closings but yours isn’t on the list, the College Board recommends checking your local media. The website also lists whether a make-up date has been scheduled.
If your test was postponed or relocated, the College Board says to be sure to print a new ticket and don’t try to show up to a center other than the one you’ve been assigned to. Saturday was the last chance to take the current version of the SAT before the redesigned version is introduced in March, but College Board confirmed that any make up exams for Saturday’s administration also will the current version.
