Important Points to Remember

The SAT exam dates in 2012 for U.S. and international locations are listed below. You must remember a few things before deciding on your SAT test date:

  • Check with your college about score requirements. Some colleges prefer to have scores by September while other colleges prefer to have scores by January. Depending on the session, you must have your scores ready to be sent to colleges. For example, if your college requires scores by September 2012, you need to ensure that you will receive the score before September. Thus, you must plan to take the test early enough so that the scores reach the colleges on time.
  • Before deciding your test date, check your preparedness for the exam. A good way to check this is to take a diagnostic test or even the PSAT (to get a feel of the actual test). Use the scores to judge your level of preparedness and to determine the amount of effort required and the duration to complete it. You must allow yourself enough time for preparation before the test.
  • Another important aspect is the SAT Subject Test. In case you want to appear the SAT Subject Test in 2012, you must ensure that you are well prepared in your chosen subject area. You will need ample time to equip yourself for the SAT Subject Test as well.
  • You need to check the gap between the SAT test and the SAT Subject Test conducted in 2012. You should have enough time to prepare for each test individually.
  • You also need to ensure that you will receive both scores at about the same time and have both scores ready to be submitted to colleges for the 2012 session.
