Canceling Scores

beginning of content:

If you feel you didn't do your best on the SAT you can cancel your scores, but you need to act quickly. Once a request to cancel scores has been submitted, scores cannot be reinstated or reported to you or any institutions.


Cancellation Deadline

You must cancel no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Thursday after your test date. Students with disabilities might have a different deadline—see below.

Option 1: At the Test Center

  1. After the test, ask the test coordinator for a Request to Cancel Test Scores form.
  2. Complete and sign the form.
  3. Return the form to the test coordinator before leaving the center.

Option 2: After You Leave the Test Center

Your written, signed request must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on the Thursday after the test date.

Exception: 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.
