June 2nd SAT scores will be returned later than usual.
College Board usually reserves about 2 weeks to return your multiple choice scores. It can take another week or so to get your essay score.
This year, however, the June 2nd multiple choice scores won’t be available until July 11th, over 5 weeks from the test day.
Those extra few weeks might not seem like a big deal. But for a student retaking the test on August 25th—those few weeks could be a perfect time to prep! Summer can easily get filled with activities, camps, and vacations. This business of summer often picks up in July, making June ideal for concentrating on test prep.
College Board has indicated that this delay will be a regular occurrence for June testers. In 2019, the June 1st test scores won’t be available until July 10th.
The best advice we can give is that if you’re considering targeting that August test date, don’t wait until your summer calendar is filled to start preparing. Summer slips by all too quickly.
