Is it too late to cancel my scores?

If you feel that you didn't do your best on the SAT, you can cancel your scores if you do so within a few days. Once a request to cancel scores has been submitted, scores cannot be reinstated and are not reported to you or any institutions.

You must cancel no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Wednesday after the test date.

Two Reasons to Cancel Scores

  1. You feel that you didn't do your best

  2. Your equipment malfunctioned during the test

    If your equipment fails during a Mathematics Level 1 or Mathematics Level 2 test or during a Language Test with Listening, you can request to cancel just the scores on the affected test, and still have the other SAT Subject Tests scored.

    If your equipment malfunctions, you must:

    • Report the equipment failure during the test
    • Fill out and sign a Request to Cancel Test Scores form, checking off "Single SAT Subject Test (equipment failure)"
    • Return the completed form to the room supervisor before leaving
  3. In all other cases, scores from all the tests you took on the same date will be canceled.

Two Ways to Cancel Scores

  1. At the test center

    After your test:

    • Ask the test supervisor for a Request to Cancel Test Scores form
    • Complete and sign the form
    • Return the form to the test supervisor before leaving the center
  2. After leaving the test center

    If you choose to cancel your scores after leaving the test center, your written request must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on the Wednesday after the test date. You cannot submit cancellation requests by phone or e-mail because your signature is required. 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.

    Download and print the SAT Request to Cancel Test Scores form or write your request. You must provide the following information to cancel your scores:

    • Test date
    • Test center number
    • Name of test you are canceling — either the SAT or SAT Subject Test(s)
    • Name, address, sex, birth date and registration number
    • Signature (required or the cancellation will not be processed)
