PREPMEDIANS GUIDE TO CHOOSING YOUR BEST 2022-2023 TEST DATE
Deadlines for college applications and scholarships
The first thing you should consider when deciding when to take the SAT is your college admission deadline schedule. Ideally, you will have taken the SAT at least once during your junior year of high school before entering senior year fall; starting the test prep process during senior fall is incredibly stressful, as you will want to focus on your grades and college essays.
“When should I take the SAT?”
If you’re a senior, aim to take the August 27th, October 1st, or November 5th SAT and then be done with testing. Many colleges will have cutoffs for how late you can take the SAT, so you’ll want to check your colleges’ admissions websites to see if you can send in the score from the December 3rd test.
If you’re a junior, aim to take the December 3rd SAT as your first test and then the March 11th and May 6th tests as your retakes. You’ll likely take the PSAT in October of your junior year and you should use the results from your PSAT to study more effectively for your December SAT. Keep retaking the tests as many times as makes sense: If you think you’ve hit your max score, then you can stop retesting (and focus on other aspects of your college application like your essays), but if you have waivers or can easily afford to pay for more tests, and you think you can significantly improve (i.e. increase 10+ percentile points), then keep retesting. You might find that you want to take a break over the summer after junior year and try one last time in the beginning of senior year too.
