Note:  We are aware that students taking the SAT and SAT Subject Tests in Hong Kong during the October 2014 administration will be sitting for the exams on October 25, 2014.  Scores from this date will be available to students online about three weeks after test date.  Institutions that were designated to receive scores prior to their release will receive them at the same time as students.  Institutions that students chose to add as score recipients later in the process will receive scores within 10 business days after that request.
