We are writing to inform you that the SAT at Berkeley High School on December 5 is cancelled. All students registered for this exam will receive notifications from the College Board via email, including information about their full refund. We received feedback from families who requested earlier notification whenever possible, so we are writing now so that students can call the College Board to sign up for later test dates.
What will happen with other SAT and ACT exams? We will keep you informed if we need to cancel other exams in the future.
Do I need the SAT or ACT for my college applications? Most colleges and universities have decided to make the SAT and ACT optional for students applying to attend school in ’21-’22. Please check here for regular updates on colleges that are test-optional; if a college is not on the list, students should search online to see the most current admissions information.
What should I do if I still want to take the SAT? At this point, students can still call College Board to sign up for future SAT dates that still have availability; we encourage you to do so quickly, as College Board does not allow us to limit sign-ups to Berkeley High students. If BHS is full, we suggest you sign-up to test at other locations. You can also look here for SAT COVID-19 updates from College Board.
We understand that this may cause a great deal of stress and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate this unprecedented time together.
Take care and stay safe,
