Well it’s official. 223,400 students took the SAT on Saturday.
When you consider that 402,000 students were originally registered to take the test, 223,400 seems like a pretty low number.
But when you consider that exactly 0 students took the June SAT, nearly a quarter of a million students starts to seem pretty encouraging.
At test centers last weekend, Collegeboard took all the necessary COVID precautions.
Students and center staff were required to wear masks or protective face coverings for the duration of the test, and students were seated at least six feet apart.
Are there “Safe” Test Centers?
As we discussed in our last blog post, choosing the right test center that won’t cancel, is crucial if you want your student to actually be able to take the SAT.
While nothing is ever 100% certain, here is a list of test centers that did not cancel the the August SAT.

Most regular decision deadlines are January 1st, but even most early decision deadlines are as late as November 1st. This means there are still 1-3 more opportunities to take the SAT and ACT for most students.
Does your student need help with the SAT or ACT?
Students who prep with us receive more acceptances, win higher financial aid packages, and gain confidence in other areas of life.
In your strategy session, we’ll develop a plan for your student to determine whether they should take the SAT or ACT, discuss which test dates are best, and create a roadmap moving forward.
