SAT Overview

SAT

 

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that tests students’ knowledge of reading, writing and basic mathematics up to high school level. The SAT examinations are held 6-7 times a year and has a total score of 1600.

Students take SAT to seek admission in colleges and universities in USA and most importantly to secure scholarships in such universities . Also, local universities have their entrance examination format similar to SAT and thus if you have a high SAT score, you often don’t have to sit for a local university’s entrance exam!

When should I register for the SAT?

We suggest that you sign up for the SAT when you are comfortable with the test and have completed all assignments related to your course. In other words, don’t plan to take the SAT directly after the course is over, in the event that you need more time to practice. However, we do NOT suggest waiting more than 60 days after the course to take the SAT. The deadline to actually register for an SAT exam is usually four to five weeks before the test date. The SAT is offered four times a year in the following months: October, December, March, and May. Students should carefully consider factors like the availability of the test date, the length of time it will take to fully prepare for the exam, and the deadlines of the colleges they will apply to when constructing their overall college admission timeline.

Schedule the exam:

  • After the course has completed (but not immediately after to allow for extra study time)
  • Before 60 days from the end of the course (so information is still fresh)
  • Registration deadline is usually 4-5 weeks prior to the test
  • Only 4 SAT exams each year: October, December, March, and May.
  • Consider college deadlines, preparation times, and test date availability before scheduling

How many times can I take the SAT?

If the colleges you are planning to apply to only require you to send your highest test scores, you can now take the SAT and SAT Subject Tests as many times as you want. Colleges will only see the scores you want to send them! If the colleges you are planning to apply to require you to send all of your test scores, we recommend you take the SAT a maximum of three times.

When should I start preparing for the SAT?

Because the SAT is the most important test for college admissions, it is always best to start preparing as early as possible. This allows more preparation time to achieve score goals. For students who aim to apply to top colleges and universities, it is best to start by June before 10th grade. Otherwise, a student should start by the summer before their 11th grade to maximize the effectiveness of our program because there are no distractions such as school homework, projects, exams or any other school activities. Students should start preparing for the SAT no later then the summer before their 12th grade.
