Standardized Testing and Diabete

Hi :)

I thought I would just post this for any people out there who still have standardized testing (SAT/ACT) that that they need to take or will have to take in future!

So here's the information:

About two years ago I was able to work with someone in my high school and the college board to get special testing accommodations for my diabetes. My accommodations say that I'm aloud to have all my equipment  and necessary food/water in the room with me and it provides that if I need to take a break for diabetic reasons I can do so without loosing any time on my test. I've used them now for the SAT, SAT 2's and AP testing. I've found that I haven't necessarily needed the accommodations yet but it really is a comfort to know that I have them there for the just in case scenarios, plus it I no longer have to go up to each and every proctor of my exams to explain that I have diabetes and what all my equipment it is!

You can get these provisions for both any SAT or ACT testing though because the two test are out of different organizations you have to get the provisions approved by both SAT and or the ACT

Here's a link for applying for accomodations on the SAT and all other college board tests:

Hope this helps! Any questions feel free to ask and I will do my best to help! :)

Hi there!

Thanks for the info! I’m going into my junior year and I’m definite this will come in handy.

Thanks again!

I’m looking at this 9 years after this was posted and also finding it helpful! I’m a sophomore taking the PSAT and an AP test this year. Thanks!
