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.
