SAT Cancels Tests in US and Abroad
January 28, 2021
The trend to deemphasize standardized tests in admissions decisions at U.S. colleges and universities moved ahead this week.
The College Board, the organization that administers the tests, said it will discontinue some and improve others. Subject tests such as biology, chemistry and world history, for example, will be discontinued in the United States but not abroad.
"We are no longer offering the subject tests in the U.S.," the College Board announced January 19. "Because subject tests are used internationally for a wider variety of purposes, we will provide two more administrations in May and June of 2021 for students in international locations."
