Some high school students recently learned that the reporting of their October SAT scores is being delayed. This Washington Post article provides an overview of the situation. With many Early Action and Early Decision deadlines only three days away, seniors who were counting on these scores to complete their application may not make the application deadlines. The score delays affect students who took the SAT in China, South Korea and, possibly Singapore. Students who find themselves in this situation should call or email each school directly to ask how the delay will be handled. Some colleges will give a grace period due to the circumstances – some will not. This is frustrating all-around. At EDNaviagotors we encourage students to complete their testing by the end of their junior year of high school. For high school seniors, this removes the testing burden, the uncertainty of where test scores will fall and whether or not scores will arrive in time. High school seniors are busy enough focusing on grades, essays and applications in the fall.
