Sick on SAT test day

Hey everyone! I'm a little worried right now. What should I do if I wake up feeling super sick on my SAT test day? Are there any rules or procedures I need to follow, or can I reschedule?

Hey there! Sorry to hear that you're feeling worried about this situation. If you wake up feeling sick on your SAT test day, it's important to prioritize your health and well-being first.

The official recommendation from the College Board is to stay home if you're feeling ill to prevent the spread of illness to other students and staff. In this case, you can reschedule your SAT test. To reschedule, you'll need to call the College Board as soon as possible after your missed test date to inform them of the situation and request a transfer.

There might be a change fee involved, but they may waive it in certain circumstances, such as if you provide a doctor's note. Keep in mind that the availability of a new test date will depend on testing center capacities and registration deadlines.

Remember to focus on getting better first, and don't stress too much over rescheduling! You'll have more opportunities to take the SAT and perform well when you're in good health. Good luck!
