    Important Information

    U.S. deadlines apply to students testing in the United States and U.S. territories.

    • U.S. registration materials that are mailed must be postmarked by the U.S. deadlines. The deadlines expire at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, U.S.
    • Additional fees apply if you register late, change your test center, change your test date, or switch from taking the SAT to taking a Subject Test after registering. Find out how to make registration changes and get deadlines.
    • Sunday administrations usually occur the day after each Saturday test date for students who can't test on Saturday due to religious observance. Please note this exception: Sunday testing for the October 3, 2020, SAT will be held October 18, 2020.
    • If you miss the late registration deadline, you may be able to get on the waitlist.
    • Your registration options will be limited if you aren't taking the SAT for one of its main purposes.
     
     * Hosted at Chatham High School
     
    Accommodations:  
     
    Students with a disability may be eligible for accommodations on the SAT & PSAT. Your counselor or special education case manager can assist with applying for accommodations. Special circumstance accommodations such as testing over multiple days and use of a computer for essays are administered at your local school. When registering, if you are approved for special circumstance accommodations your testing site will be changed to Chatham High School. Your counselor will be informed of your need to be tested and will coordinate the testing with you within the defined window. 
     
     
    Scoring and College Applications:
    College Admissions committees set their own score-use practices, some might take the scores from only one test date while others may ask you to send all of your scores so they can select the highest verbal, math and writing scores from varying test dates. The selection of the highest scores from individual test dates is referred to as a "super score." It is imperative that students check with admissions offices for the schools' score reporting requirements.
     

    SAT Subject Tests

    Each of these tests is one hour long, and students may choose between 22 subjects varying from U.S. History to Physics. Not every test is offered on every test date. A student may take up to three SAT Subject tests on one testing day. Studentscannot take the SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Tests on the same day.

     As with the SAT Reasoning test, every SAT Subject test score becomes part of the student's SAT score report, and there isa penalty for wrong answers. Many students take these tests in June of their junior year and will take them in subjects for which they also took an AP exam. Not all colleges require SAT Subject Tests. It is the student's responsibility  to determine whether or not taking SAT Subject Tests Is necessary for a given school. The information is attainable by accessing a college or university's website.
