The October SAT is Exactly 1 Month Away!


Don’t panic … these things have a way of sneaking up on you. In case it slipped your mind, the next SAT is on October 11, 2014 – exactly one month from today.

What if you forgot to register?

It’s fine. If you have to take the October SAT, you can still register for a couple more weeks.

Late registration goes until September 26th for mailed registration forms, and until September 30th for registrations made online or over the phone. It costs $52.50 to register for the SAT in the United States. The late registration fee costs an additional $26.00. It’s a bummer, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

If you can wait another month to take the SAT, the next test will be held on November 8, 2014. The registration deadline is October 9th – do it now before you forget!

Go to the College Board website for more information on registering for the SAT.

How you can prepare for the SAT in 1 month

Okay, my procrastinating friends. Whether or not you’ve taken the SAT before, you need to familiarize yourself with the format of the test, learn some section-specific strategies, write some practice essays, and beef up your SAT vocabulary. You also really need a study schedule to keep you on track.
