The SAT is a nationally administered exam taken by many students worldwide. The SAT is offered seven times a year, and you should keep a track of the upcoming exam dates and deadlines to align your preparation strategy accordingly.
For those of you who missed taking the exam on June 3, 2018, the College Board has already released the next SAT dates and deadlines for the year 2017-2018. Typically, SAT is conducted on Saturdays and registration deadlines are 3-4 weeks before the exam. Most test takers appear for SAT in the summer of their junior year and then once again in the fall of their senior year. We recommend taking the exam twice for most takers so that they can apply with the best score possible.
