You may be asking . . .
“So when should I register?”
That’s a great question. You definitely don’t want to wait until the last minute. Generally speaking, students need to apply about a month before the test date to take the test on the day of their choice. However, late registration is accepted until about two weeks before the test.
“Btw, where is my test site?”
Yeah, I guess we should cover that too ─ that’s pretty important information!! Thankfully, the College Board website has a handy feature to help you find SAT testing centers in or near your city. Be sure to register with your chosen testing center as soon as possible to ensure that there are no unforeseen complications on the day of your test.
”One last thing: How do I get ready?”
