What is the best SAT test date?

The best SAT date will depend on whatever time you will be able to commit to prepping seriously for at least one month straight. It will be well in time before school deadlines, so that you can retake the test, if necessary. It will likely NOT be when you have other tests such as finals, APs or SAT subject tests (in our experience, June is the month when students tend to score lower).

Since ACT test dates typically fall on different months than SAT dates, you can study for both the SAT and ACT back to back–given you have enough bandwidth to prep for two months straight. However, you can also streamline your studying by converting ACT and SAT practice test scores to see which you’re doing better on!

What do I need to know about SAT test dates and locations?

Make sure to register for the SAT as early as possible. When you go to the College Board site, you’ll be allowed to choose from a few locations, depending on your area. Choose the location that is close to you, has convenient parking, and you can get to easily without having to depend on someone to get you there on test day.

What happens if my SAT test date is postponed?

This is rare. But should it happen, College Board should typically give you the next available date. Or, as in the case of February 2016, if a snowstorm or other event closes a bunch of testing centers, the College Board may offer a makeup SAT test date. If it doesn’t, don’t just sign up for the next date. Make sure that it fits in with your schedule.

What happens if I have to reschedule my SAT test date?

You’ll have to pay $28. But if you have a very good reason for rescheduling the SAT, then try not to make that fee the final judge.

What do international students need to know about international SAT test dates?

The international test dates are the same as the standard test dates outlined above. If you’ve heard otherwise, then google [home country][SAT test dates]. But to the best of our knowledge, this shouldn’t be the case.

For SAT subject tests the picture is a little different. See the official College Board international SAT Subject Test charts for which subject tests are offered when for international students.

      Hi Laura,

      The international calendar is identical, except I believe the March dates are not offered internationally. 🙂

    Hello there!
    İ wanted to know that if İ need to apply to a medical school in the U.S. as an international student, should İ take the SAT one year before the MDCAT? And how should İ plan my SAT subject tests along with the real SAT?

      Hi Zona,

      We would love to be able to help, but this is really an admissions/guidance counselor question. Furthermore, we are test prep experts and not medical school admissions experts. You really shouldn’t count on us for your plan! (But definitely count on us for an SAT prep plan.) If you have access to a guidance counselor, we highly recommend making an appointment to talk through this. Otherwise, start researching on school admission pages to see what requirements you need to meet. You may or may not need subject SATS, for example. Wishing you the best! 🙂

    Will I be able to apply for spring of 2019 if I take my SAT test on March of 2019?
    And what about fall?

      Hi Reetesh,

      Each school has it’s own application timeline, so I encourage you to research your target schools to get a deeper understanding of their admissions process. However, in general, applications for US schools are due between November and January. So, if you want to apply for Fall 2019 admission, your application will probably be due December 2018 or January 2019. There are some schools that have rolling admissions, which means that you can apply later for Fall admissions. Your SAT score is due with your application, so you will need to take the SAT before the application due date. You can see more information in this College Application Timeline.

    Is it possible to score 1600 as international student?

      Hi Idris,

      It is absolutely possible for an international student to get a perfect score; be warned, though, that perfect scores are incredibly rare for any student! I recommend that you check out this blog post: How to Get a Perfect Score.

    The March 2020 test date listed on the website is wrong. Per the College Board website the date is March 14, 2020.

    Thank you for researching the information!

      Hi Shelby,

      Thanks for pointing this out! I checked the website and you are absolutely right: the date is March 14th. Those test dates are still ‘anticipated’, so we will look into them and see how to update this table 🙂

      Assuming you take your SAT senior year, then yes. Remember, though, you can take the SAT anytime you like. 🙂

    Hey ! So , what if I dropped 2 years after school and am willing to take an SAT in 2020 . When do you suggest I should take an SAT test and the SAT subject tests?

      Hi Gargi,

      This depends on what your target university requires. Most schools require the SAT test. Some schools or programs require subject tests in addition to the SAT. I’d recommend contacting the admissions counselors at your target schools for more information 🙂
