Are You Taking Your SAT on Saturday?

Hooray! You’re so close to hopefully being done with the SAT forever!


Okay. Let’s not celebrate just yet.

How prepared are you?

I hope that you’ve been studying for awhile, and are familiar with the types of questions and concepts that the SAT is about to throw your way. At the very least, you should know that the SAT is on Saturday, January 23rd (that’s this weekend).

You should also know that this is the last time that the current version of the SAT will be offered. It’s the end of an era! After Saturday, the SAT will be completely revamped. But, don’t worry about that – we have lots of information about the New SAT and we offer Magoosh New SAT prep to help you study. For now, though, let’s focus on your upcoming SAT!

Now’s the time to figure out where your testing location is and what you need to bring to the SAT.

Whether you are fully prepared and just need to stay relaxed, or you completely forgot that your SAT is coming up and you’re starting to panic — you should take advantage of these convenient resources to help you survive this week.

      Hi Jessica,

      Being kinda nervous is a good thing. 🙂 As long as you’re prepared, all that’s left to do now is review a couple things, pack your day-of bag, set two alarms, and maybe listen to some relaxing music on the way to the exam. Then remember your strategies and do your best! And make sure you have something fun planned for after – it’s really important to celebrate after sitting through a 4 hour exam. 🙂

      Good luck!!

      Hi Asfour,

      It’s okay to be nervous before taking the SAT exam – it is an important test. However, as long as you do your best to prepare and try your hardest on test day, you really can’t have any regrets. Please be sure to take some deep breaths, read some of our test week blog posts, and get good sleep before the exam. And know that the Magoosh team is here for you! We hope that you’ll do well. And if you need to retake the exam, just let us know and we’ll do our best to help. 🙂

      Good luck!
