Are all SAT questions multiple-choice?

How to register online for SAT?

 

 

Candidates can folow the steps for applying online:

 

When to expect SAT scores?

 

SAT scores will be available to students beginning on the dates listed below:

 

  • Jan. 21 test date: Feb. 23 score delivery
  • March 11 test date: April 13 score delivery
  • May 6 test date: May 8 score delivery
  • June 3 test date: July 12 score delivery
  • Students who register online and wish to receive a paper score report by mail in addition to the online score report must request it when they register.

How to Prepare for the SAT Tests?

 

 

  • Because the SAT Subject Tests are based on high school course work, the best way to prepare for them is by learning the material taught in the corresponding classes and using the textbooks that you’re already using for those classes.
  • If you’re doing well in these courses or taking advanced level courses (such as honors, dual enrollment, Advanced Placement, IB), Subject Tests are an excellent opportunity for you to show your understanding of the subject area. Candidates can practice SAT here.

What's the difference between the SAT and SAT Subject Tests?

 

 

The SAT measures what you have learned in school and how well you can apply that knowledge. It assesses how well you analyze and solve problems. SAT scores are used for college admissions purposes because the test predicts college success. The SAT Subject Tests are one-hour, primarily multiple-choice tests in specific subjects. SAT Subject Tests measure knowledge or skills in a particular subject and your ability to apply that knowledge.

 

How to choose which tests to take?

 

The SAT Subject Tests that you take should be based on your interests and academic strengths. The tests are a great way to show colleges your interest in specific majors or programs of study (e.g., engineering, pre-med, cultural studies), and to highlight your strong points. See a list of colleges that require, recommend, or consider Subject Tests.

How many times can you take the test?

 

 

You can take the test as many times as you want. Most students take the test once or twice. Research shows that taking the test more than twice won't help you significantly improve your score. Your online score report and the report sent to your high school (if you give us your high school code) shows your current test score, in addition to scores for up to six SAT and six SAT Subject Test administrations. You have the option to choose which scores (by test date for the SAT and by individual test for SAT Subject Tests) you send to colleges-in accordance with each institution's stated score-use practice. You can choose scores from one, several, or all SAT test dates.
