SAT Postponed Throughout New York City; Testing Centers Closed In Other Locations Nov. 2 Will Not Administer This Weekend's Exam

As New York City continues to recover from Hurricane Sandy, the SAT scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 3 has been postponed for all students who were scheduled to take the test in any of the city’s five boroughs, the New York Times reports.

The makeup date is scheduled for Nov. 17, two weeks before the regularly scheduled Dec. 1 exam.

Additionally, tests may also be postponed in other areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, according to College Board’s website. The College Board is currently in the process of trying to contact test centers on the east coast that were affected by the storm, and will be posting information about test center closings as it becomes available.

According to the website:

In the event that we are unable to contact a test center, students and parents should assume that if the school is closed on Friday, November 2, it will not be administering the SAT this weekend. Students can also contact SAT customer service at 866-756-7346 to check on the status of their test center.

Students for whom the SAT is cancelled will receive an email notification including a makeup date as soon as one can be scheduled.

Those whose test centers are closed should not attempt to test elsewhere on test day, as supervisors cannot admit standbys or walk-ins.

For areas not affected by Hurricane Sandy, normal test center closing procedures apply.
