Rescheduling of November SAT in selected countries:

On account of Eid Al Adha, the November SAT test date has been postponed to November 19 in selected Muslim countries. The list of the countries in which the exam is postponed is available at http://sat.collegeboard.org/register/special-circumstances. Applicants from these countries can take the SAT only on Nov 19, even if they had already registered for Nov 5. A new admission ticket with the revised SAT schedule would be sent to them in this case. For students from these countries who haven’t registered for November yet, the deadline for registration remains the same (Oct 7, 2011). And, of course, their admission ticket will have the revised November SAT date.

There are possibilities that the candidates cannot take the test on Nov 19. In that circumstance, they are requested to contact College Board SAT Program as soon as possible. The applicant would then be transferred to a future test date without any extra fees. Students residing in other countries not mentioned in the list and are still at religious observance on Nov 5 can request for an alternate test date in November by contacting College Board SAT Program. The contact details are available at http://sat.collegeboard.org/contact.
