The scholastic aptitude test was taken on June 20, 1931 by 8,895 candidates, of whom 8,067 (4,477 boys and 3,590 girls) reported themselves as being final candidates for admission to college and 828 (416 boys and 412 girls) declared themselves to be at least one year away from college. It is now known that some of the candidates who declared themselves final candidates are considered as preliminary candidates by the administrators of the secondary schools which they were attending. Special reports had to be sent to the colleges on thirty-five candidates, thirteen 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 two 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 358 places of examination, divided into 398 centers and subcenters.
The records of the 8,067 final candidates were classified by colleges, duplicates caused by the designation of more than one college being avoided by taking the college named first. The colleges for which the 3,590 girls, who were final candidates, were examined are shown in Table I.
