SAT Test Days





On Which Days Can You Test in 2012 [note it is about days and not dates]

SAT Schedule

The SAT test days are scheduled seven times a year in the U.S. and six times a year at other international locations. Based on this schedule, you can plan and prepare for the SAT test. It is also a good idea to check with the colleges you are applying to regarding their timelines of admission, when they accept scores. For example, some colleges prefer to have scores for their September admissions, whereas other colleges prefer to have scores for their January admissions.

Depending on the date you plan to take your test, you can plan your study schedule accordingly. Make sure that you allow yourself enough preparation time between the test dates you select. In addition, make sure that there is enough time for receiving your scores so that you can send them to colleges based on their acceptance dates.

Saturday Schedule

The SAT test days are held on a Saturday. The SAT test days are usually conducted on the following days of the respective month:

  • 4th Saturday in January
  • 2nd Saturday in October
  • 1st Saturday in May, June, November, and December

Sunday Testing

In case you are unable to appear for the exam on Saturday for religious reasons, you may opt for taking the test on the next day, which is Sunday. However, Sunday testing is only available for special circumstances. You can avail the Sunday testing facility only if there are provisions available, such as available test center, materials, and so on. In order to request for a test on a Sunday, you need to submit a written request stating the reason for your request.

Organizing Yourself

It is always best to prepare ahead of the SAT test day. Make sure that you have organized the things you need at the test center well in advance. This will help you avoid the last minute rush to get things together. Make sure that you bring the following with you to the test center:

  • Your admission ticket
  • Photo ID (that includes information matching the information on your admission ticket)
  • Two No. 2 pencils and a good eraser
  • A basic calculator

The schedule of the SAT test days helps you to organize yourself much in advance. Knowing the dates helps you to plan and prepare ahead of the test. Use this time wisely to cover all the concepts and topic areas. Make sure that you practice as many questions as you can so that you are familiar with all types of questions.
