Important Reminders for Digital SAT


ATTENTION: Issue Affecting iPads

Apple identified an issue that impacts some students using iPads running iPadOS 17. To prevent experiencing this issue on test day, you need to choose one of the following options:

1. If you're using an iPad, update your device to iPadOS 17.1, or use version 16 or earlier.

2. Test on an alternate testing device (Windows, Mac, or school-managed Chromebook).

Important: Bluebook™ must be installed on your testing device to test. This issue won't impact your ability to complete your practice test.

(More details: Bluebook Alerts for Professionals)

Introduction
SAT is offered by the College Board of the United States. The Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) is one of the examination centres appointed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to hold SAT in Hong Kong.

The SAT is the most widely used and most rigorously researched college admissions test in history. Virtually every college in the United States accepts the SAT as a measure of the critical thinking skills students need for academic success in college. The SAT assesses how well students analyze and solve problems - skills learned in school that are needed in college. The test also provides an independent measure of a student's college readiness that is standardized across all students, schools, and communities, providing a common and objective scale for comparison.

 

Examination Registration

The SAT is offered internationally in August, October, November, December, March, May and June.  Registration for taking the test in Hong Kong must be done online via the Web site of the College Board at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/international/.

General Typhoon / Bad Weather Arrangements
As cancellation and/or postponement of an examination is a very serious matter, any decision to do so by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) will be made only when it is absolutely necessary. If weather conditions are at all doubtful (such as the possible hoisting of a Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above or the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning), candidates should pay attention to the radio or television broadcast, or view the HKEAA website for examination schedules right up to the time they leave for the examination centre. Candidates should note that:

(a) under normal circumstances, the HKEAA announcement of the postponement/cancellation of an examination will be made approximately two hours before the commencement of the examination;

(b) the announcement of closure of schools due to a tropical cyclone/the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning does not necessarily imply any postponement/cancellation of an examination scheduled to be held on that day;

(c) unless an announcement has been made by the HKEAA that examinations/public examinations/ international and professional examinations held by the HKEAA are postponed/cancelled due to bad weather conditions, candidates must assume that their examinations will be conducted as originally scheduled;

(d) once an examination has started, it will continue for the full allotted time unless physical conditions in the examination centre are considered to be dangerous by the Centre Supervisor.
