The scholastic aptitude test was taken on June 21, 1930 by 8,724 candidates, of whom 8,153 were final candidates (4,602 boys and 3,551 girls), and 571 were preliminary candidates (324 boys and 247 girls). Special reports had to be made on thirty-five candidates, twelve of whom were compelled to leave the examination because of illness, twenty of whom apparently skipped inadvertently one or more pages of the mathematical portion of the test and worked on the harder problems towards the end, and three of whom had improperly bound booklets. The centers at which the tests were given and the number of candidates examined at each center are listed in Table III. The tests were given in 347 places of examination, divided into 379 centers and subcenters.
The records of the 8,153 final candidates were classified by colleges, duplicates caused by the designation of more than one college being avoided by taking the colleges named first. The colleges for which the 3,551 girls, who were final candidates, were examined are shown in Table I.
