Canceling Scores

If you feel that you didn't do your best on your SAT Subject Tests and want to cancel your scores, you have a few days to do so.

Important Information

  • You must cancel no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Wednesday after the test date.
  • Your scores for all Subject Tests taken on that date are canceled — unless the cancellation is caused by equipment failure during a test.
  • Canceled scores are not reported to you or any institutions.
  • Once a request to cancel scores has been submitted, scores cannot be reinstated.

Canceling Scores at the Test Center

Because You Want To

If you start taking a test and decide you’re not ready for it, you can cancel the scores before you leave the test center. Don’t try to erase all answers to a test — they might get scanned and recorded anyway. Instead, do this:

  1. Ask the test supervisor for a Request to Cancel Test Scores Form.
  2. Complete and sign the form.
  3. Return the form to the test supervisor before you leave the test center.

Because Your Equipment Failed

If your calculator fails during a Mathematics Level 1 or Mathematics Level 2 test, or your CD player fails during a Language Test with Listening, you can cancel just the scores on the affected test, and still have the other Subject Tests scored. Here’s how:

  1. Report the equipment failure during the test.
  2. Fill out and sign a Request to Cancel Test Scores form, checking off "Single Subject Test (Equipment Failure)."
  3. Return the completed form to the test supervisor before leaving.

Canceling Scores After You Leave the Test Center

If you decide to cancel your scores after you leave the test center, we must receive your written request no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on the Wednesday after test day.

  • You cannot submit cancellation requests by phone or email, because your signature is required.
  • Students with disabilities who test in school-based testing have until the Monday one week after the published test date to cancel their scores, due to the extended school-testing window.
