Hi, thank you for asking your question! Generally, the SAT and Subject SATs are used in the standard college admissions process not for specific summer programs so there is nothing to immediately worry about. However, having a SSAT, if you have taken it before the exam was cancelled earlier this January, may be helpful if you are applying to a program that aligns with the field of interest.

I am attaching a few links that may be helpful for you. The first is a livestream about the subject SAT cancellation. The second is a blog post about the importance of summer programs, which you may already know, and what to keep in mind when applying.
