Cancelling SAT 2 Tests?

QuandaryQuandary Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
I signed up for the three SAT 2 tests for this saturday, anticipating that I would have more time to study than I did, even though I only needed two. Turns out I don't have nearly enough time to study for all three; is there any way online I can drop one of my three tests?

    I called the collegeboard and asked the same question, they told me that you only can defer the test to next year and pay extra $20.00 for doing that, but you can't cancel it! I don't know if it will record on your final report. you need to check with them. hope this help!

    I have this question as well. I'm not looking for a refund on one test (I used a fee waiver), I just want to make sure that I can just take two tests instead of three without any ill effects. Will not taking one be like erasing all answers, thus invalidating all of the tests, or will it show up that I failed to take it, or will there be no effect?

    You cannot cancel the SAT II tests after you register for them. :\

    Though the only way to remedy your situation is by leaving the test room after you've taken your 2 tests. Yes, you'll waste your money in the process, but nothing will show up for that test that you don't want to take.

    Leave the room after taking 2 tests. You'll lose the $10 you paid for the test but your score report won't show that you ever signed up for that particular test.

    Thats good enough for me. The money isn't a huge issue, I mainly just want to not get a ****ty score sent to colleges because I haven't prepared.

    I have the same issue. So just to clarify, if I leave after taking 2 subject tests, the score report wouldn't show that I had registered a third test and my other 2 tests wouldn't be affected at all?
