College Board announced that it will not be administering the SAT or SAT Subject tests on June 6th, due to the ongoing public safety risk posed by COVID-19. This latest decision marks the third consecutive SAT date postponed due to the virus, and will be particularly frustrating for students whose March and May testing dates were pushed to June.
In order to help students make up their testing dates, the College Board will be adding a September test, which means that students will have the ability to take one SAT every month from August straight through to December of 2020.
ACT has rescheduled its April 4 national test date to June 13. Students who already registered for the April 4 test date will receive an email from ACT soon informing them of the postponement and instructions for free rescheduling to June 13 or a future national test date.
Both the ACT and SAT are nationally recognized standardized tests. All US colleges and universities accept scores from either the ACT or SAT, although some schools do not require either. The decision whether to take ACT of SAT depends on you! This chart summarizes some of the key differences between the two tests. To determine which test is a better fit for you, you can take a mock test or diagnostic comparison test at Centennial for only $5 on select Saturdays.
