SAT Examination in May 2021


The government of Hong Kong SAR has NOT changed its quarantine requirements since Spring of 2020, including those from Mainland China. The May 8 SAT and SAT Subject Test registrations of test takers traveling from Mainland China to Hong Kong have been canceled because the testing space reserved in Hong Kong requires confirmation of the number of test takers before test day. The College Board directly notified students whose registrations were canceled. If you think your registration was canceled in error, please contact College Board Customer Service by Monday, April 26 at or +1-212-713-7789. College Board Customer Service hours are 9 a.m.–6 p.m. ET, Monday–Friday.


In order to maintain social distancing among candidates, local candidates registered at AsiaWorld-Expo or other exam centres will be transferred to different locations for testing on May 8. Candidates will be notified directly of any location changes by College Board. Please pay close attention to the latest news published on the website of the College Board and HKEAA. You are strongly advised to also log in to your SAT account to confirm your registration details the day before your test.


For enquiry, please contact SAT Customer Service at +1-212-713-7789.




Date: 12 April  2021



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 and SAT with Essay 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.

The SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure students' knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as their ability to apply that knowledge. The tests are independent of any particular textbook or method of instruction, and many colleges use them for admissions, for course placement, and to advise students about course selection.

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.
