This infographic allows us to look at trends in SAT dates and see whether certain dates and deadlines overlap with others.
As you can see on this visual calendar, SAT test dates are tightly clustered in the late summer and fall.
If you'll be ordering additional score reports after your scores come out, stick with test dates more than seven or eight weeks before your deadlines. Generally, school-based SAT scholarships will use the same deadlines as college applications.
That said, avoid registering for back-to-back SAT test dates, especially in the fall of your senior year.
Squeezing in too many SATs gives you barely any time to study and probably won't raise your score by any noticeable margin. Before you register for the SAT, decide how much time you'll need to dedicate to studying.
In the spring, SAT dates are more spread out, with the exception of May and June.
This is, again, due to the fact that there are fewer college application deadlines in spring than there are in fall and early winter.
In general, the College Board administers the SAT on Saturdays, with more tests offered in the fall.
If you can't take the test on a Saturday for religious or other reasons, Sunday alternate dates are usually available.Below, we give you SAT test dates, normal registration deadlines, late registration deadlines, and score release dates for 2019/2020.All the test dates have been officially confirmed by the College Board, although some of the score release dates haven't.These dates are also geared more toward juniors and other students who'd like to take the SAT early.Next, we can see that because of the high number of test dates in the fall, it's difficult to take two SATs in a row.The College Board sends SAT scores to schools (for your four free score reports) beginning one day online score release, or approximately three to five weeks after the exam.
