So I just logged into the CollegeBoard website and it says my score is pending and I should receive it within a week...does anyone know why this is/what this means? Thanks!!

    My son’s portal says the same. If I remember correctly, his last scores weren’t posted until about 6:00pm EST on the day of release date.

    My score is available already. However, it does say that "scores will be released throughout the day" so I guess I'm just lucky. You should receive yours pretty soon.

    My son’s says the same thing. I hope it posts today. I want to see if we’re on the right track with his college list.

    DS took SAT subject tests that were supposed to also be released today but nothing yet...the site just indicates the scores are coming...just another reason to dislike CB...

    My D’s says ‘not yet available‘, and “Your Score Is Coming“ in different places, rather than “pending”. It’s for a Subject Test, so maybe it’s different.

    The site has a general banner “Most May SAT multiple choice scores will be posted throughout the day beginning Friday, May 17.”

    I wouldn’t think anything out of the ordinary unless they’re not posted by tomorrow morning.

    EDIT - ours showed up as I was typing

    Be sure to check the "My SAT site". Our scores are there, but not yet on the "Student Score Reports" page, which still says "Your Score Is Coming". I assume the detailed statistical breakdown will follow after the numeric score is provided to everyone.

    Not sure I understand why scores showing up mid-day on the day they were committed to be delivered is "just another reason to dislike CB." Did they promise you some specific time for them to be delivered, unlike the rest of us who were told they would be posted through the day (as they were)?

    DS page changed, it now says pending and will be out in a week. It did not say pending before.

    He checked the My SAT site and the tests he took are listed but no scores yet.

    I live in Massachusetts and my score is still pending. I checked the SAT site and the scores are not there.

    Still pending for my son here in CA at 1:50pm pdt. I'm sort of optimistically hoping that the reason is that his statistical improvement over his PSAT score is sufficiently notable that they want to review to make sure there aren't any anomalies from that exam classroom and that his handwriting sample matches up with prior psat. Anyway, that's what I'm telling myself to stay patient.

    I love how they say expect to hear from us within a week, but if you haven't heard in 3 weeks give us a call..... As though I'm not going to call after that first week is up :smile:

    Any experience on this from others whose scores have been delayed?

    Hey guys! Just wanted to give a quick update. My score appeared a few minutes before 5pm central/6 eastern (I live in Illinois). 1540 and I’m so surprised & excited! Don’t lose hope if you still haven’t received your scores - I’ve done a lot of nervous reading today, and many times, scores will show up tomorrow morning or throughout the week. Certainly be in contact with College Board if you don’t receive yours a week from now. Chances are you’ve just been randomly selected for a test audit to make sure your scores are accurate. Good luck with all your test taking and college apps!!

    Well, they finally got my son's scores posted! He got a 1510 (750V/760M) which he's probably ok with though looking at the problems that he got wrong on the math they were immediately obvious to him in hindsight.... Still it was a fair improvement over his psat…..

    I haven't got my score yet, today i called the collegeboard and they checked and told me that it takes 5 to 7 additional days more. I asked them why? But they didnt tell any thing.
    What is wrong? I'm so freaked out ,i was waiting too long for this score
    Have you had such an experience?

    My son called College Board and they said his test has met the Scoring Exception Process. What does Scoring Exception Process mean? This was his first test.
