College Board Tests for Jewish Students Not to Be Held on Sabbath

At least one special date will be set aside nationally for graduates of high schools who are unable to take college board examinations on the regular Saturday date, it was announced here.

In announcing this new plan, Dr. Paul J. Mather, president of the American College Testing Program of the University of Iowa said that “It is certainly never going to be our intention in any way to interfere with the religious affiliations of individuals when there is a matter of conflict with testing.”

The college boards tasks indicate a student’s aptitude for college studies and are used by universities and schools throughout the country.
