The College Board is cancelling the May 2nd SAT and SAT Subject Test administration. Students who already registered for the May 2nd test date will receive refunds. The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as possible in place of canceled administrations.

They have not yet cancelled the June 6th SAT and SAT Subject Test administration and will continue to assess its status with the health and safety of students and educators as their top priority.

How and When to Access Your AP Test Scores

Students will receive access to AP scores based on their location starting in early July.  Students can be prepared, particularly those who have never taken an AP Exam before, by taking the steps below:

Sign up now for a College Board account on the student AP scores website. It’s required to get scores. Some students may already have an account, so have them confirm this by signing in.

Remember account username and password, and your AP number (or student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet).

Students will also receive an email in early July reminding them how and when to access their scores.

ACT/SAT Concordance Table-The ACT and SAT are different tests that measure similar but distinct constructs. The ACT measures achievement related to high school curricula, while the SAT measures general verbal and quantitative reasoning.
ACT and the College Board have completed a concordance study that is designed to examine the relationship between two scores on the ACT and SAT. These concordance tables do not equate scores, but rather provide a tool for finding comparable scores.  Click here for ACT/SAT Concordance Table
