The coronavirus caused school closures which forced the cancellation of spring SAT testing for about 1 million first-time test-takers, planning to enter college in 2021. The June 6, 2020 test session is the latest to be canceled. Just when you thought the SAT and all the stress and undue pressure it causes students was put to an end, the SAT people have come up with a way to stay alive.
The company that runs the SAT is working on a back up plan for future testing dates. A home version of the SAT college entrance exam is being prepared in case schools remain closed into the fall. Instead of a paper and pencil test given under proctors’ supervision, the home version would be digital and rely on “remote proctoring.” That could include using the computer’s camera and microphone to monitor movement or talking. It will remain to be seen if this method could work without the possibility of mass cheating.
High school students rejoice. Due to the coronavirus, a growing number of universities are now dropping the SAT and ACT requirement for fall 2021 admissions, including Boston University and University of California. Currently the list is about 51 universities and colleges that have removed the ACT/SAT requirement for the fall of 2021 and some are even extending the ban through the spring of 2022.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the College Board has announced that the SAT and SAT subject tests are canceled until further notice. Makeup exams for the March 14, 2020 testing date that was then postponed until March 28, 2020 are now officially canceled. They have also canceled May 2, 2020 and June 6, 2020 testing sessions. Also eliminated are makeup tests for the originally scheduled March 25, 2020 SAT School Day administration and SAT School Day sessions on April 14, 2020 and April 28, 2020. PSAT sessions scheduled for April are canceled and will not take place this spring at all.
Students who already registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores because of any irregularities will receive refunds. In May, students registered for June can transfer their registration to one of the fall SAT administrations for free. Students who want to cancel their SAT registration instead can get a refund by contacting their customer service.

Y3K Tutor In Your Home is supporting the Fiske Elementary School Auction with a tutoring and test preparation donation. The auction is one of the school’s main fundraisers. The funds raised at the auction go directly to the Fiske PTO to support programs such as METCO, which enables minority children from Boston to attend Wellesley Public Schools and English Learning Language (ELL) teaching non-English speaking students to develop a proficiency in English. In addition to these programs, the auction provides funding for curriculum enrichment programs, library books, classroom technology and supplies, playground equipment, and other necessary school expenditures not covered by the school budget.
With the Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring donation and your bids, we hope to continue to provide greater learning opportunities for the Fiske Elementary School students of Wellesley, MA. This is a great way to give back to the Wellesley community which is why we plan on making this donation an annual tradition.
