When is the SAT given?
The SAT is administered seven times a year--in October, November, December, January, March, May, and June--on Saturday mornings. Special arrangements for schedule changes are available.
If I didn't mail in a registration form, may I still take the SAT?
On the day of the test, walk-in registration is available, but you must call ETS in advance. You will be accommodated only if space is available--it usually is.
How important is the SAT and how is it used?
It is crucial! Although colleges may consider other factors, the majority of admission decisions are based on only two criteria: your SAT score and your GPA.
How many times should I take the SAT?
Most people are better off preparing thoroughly for the SAT, taking it one time and getting their top score. You can take the test as often as you like, but some schools will average your scores. You should call the schools to which you are applying to find out their policy. Then plan your strategy accordingly.
Can I cancel my score?
Yes. To do so, you must notify ETS within 5 days after taking the SAT.
Where can I get the registration forms?
Most high schools have the forms. You can also get them directly from ETS by writing to:

Scholastic Assessment Test (ETS)
Educational Testing Service P.O. Box 6200
Princeton, NJ 08541

Or calling
