About the SAT

The SAT consists of four sections and an optional essay and is offered each school year in October, November, December, January, March, May, and June. Most students take it in the spring of their junior year. Some repeat the exam in the fall of their senior year. Those who realize its importance begin taking it in their sophomore or even freshman year.

About the PSAT

The PSAT is a preliminary test that provides practical experience for the SAT. It also gives students a chance to qualify for National Merit Scholarship programs. It's shorter than the SAT, with less reading and math questions, and there is no essay. PSAT scores will help a student pinpoint which subjects they may need to focus on while preparing to take the SAT.

You may take the SAT as many times as you want. Most students who take the SAT more than once take it first in the spring of their junior year, then again in the fall of their senior year.

Each area of the SAT (Evidence-based Reading & Writing and Math) is scored on a scale from 200 to 800. The scores for the two areas are combined to produce an overall SAT scaled score of 400-1600.

The scores are based on the number of correct answers. There are no penalties for incorrect answers.

Each college and university sets its own SAT score requirements for admission into that school. Check with the schools you are interested in applying to in order to determine the SAT score you need to achieve. You can decide which SAT scores are sent to prospective schools.
