Several High Schools Cancel SAT Exams

(Washington, DC) — The District’s Woodrow Wilson High School is among a number of area high schools canceling college admission tests scheduled for next month. Along with D.C.’s Wilson high school, a number of schools in Maryland and Virginia decided to cancel the SAT exams. Due to safety concerns, there were no exams in April, May, and June, prompting the College Board, which runs the SAT, to ask schools across the country to ease their admission requirements. That has caused several schools like Howard University and the University of Maryland to implement a test-optional policy for incoming students.
