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.
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
- After the test, ask the test coordinator for a Request to Cancel Test Scores form.
- Complete and sign the form.
- 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.
