With spring and early summer test dates canceled for the SAT and ACT, we continue to expect a huge demand for the next several test dates for both exams. While many colleges are offering test-optional policies for the class of 2021, we strongly advise students to provide test scores if possible. Students who need or plan to take any of these tests should register as soon as possible to ensure their seat.
If you were able to take the March 14 SAT test, count yourself lucky. The possibility of taking an in-person test in the next 6 weeks seems out of the question given the progression of safety measures enacted across the country. And if the situation does not improve, the future of the in-person college admissions testing regime is definitely in question.
This delay will build up demand for testing slots until testing can be administered safely and all students can access the tests successfully and fairly. We expect a big wave of students later in the year as current Juniors push to get second and third tests in before their applications are due in the late Fall/early winter.
So what do we know today about the future test availability and how should you plan your testing in the face of this uncertainty?
You have questions—we have the answers.
As students plan their course schedule for the 2020-2021 school year, many parents and students are asking if they should take advance placement courses instead of honors or standard selections.
If you are planning on taking an SAT test, ACT test, PSAT test, or AP exams this school year, we have something for you. Our handy test calendar allows you to track these important dates, the days Montgomery County Public Schools will be off or have early dismissal during the 2019-2020 school year, and the key to dos for students planning their college admissions process.
