Students are currently facing the reality of canceled SAT and ACT test dates due to coronavirus. In addition, dozens of colleges have shifted to test-optional admissions for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. However, some students are still prepping for the possibility that tests will be administered this fall, and many colleges are still requiring test scores as part of a completed application. To get a handle on how students from the class of 2019 (the most recent admissions cycle for which statistics have been released) fared on these tests, check out this infographic outlining the data.
