Palestinian students to take makeup SATs


Palestinian students in the West Bank will take their SAT exams two weeks late.

Some 100 students in the West Bank planning to apply to attend U.S. universities will take the test on Oct. 20, the U.S. State Department told The Associated Press.

The test was canceled on its original date because the exams arrived in the middle of the Sukkot holiday, when Israel's Customs Office was closed.

The cancellation by the American nonprofit organization Amideast, which administers the SAT in the West Bank, was first reported in the Harvard Crimson student newspaper. The article alleged that Israeli authorities purposely held the exams sent by the College Board "for weeks."
