When should I prepare for the SAT?

Ideally, high school students should start preparing a year before the SAT exam. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year in high school.

For the Critical Reading and Writing portion of the SAT, you should be begin preparing as early as possible. The Math section of the SAT covers material up to Algebra 2, so it would be best to begin preparing for the Math section after you have taken Algebra 2.

What is considered a good SAT score?

A good SAT score is relative. Colleges have different standards in which they accept applicants. For example, the University of California school system generally require a score between 1800 and 2200 to consider you a good candidate. Ivy League schools will generally require a score in the 2100 to 2400 range.

It’s important to remember, however, that your test scores are not the only information colleges use to make their admission decisions. Grades are a very important part, while essays, recommendations, interviews and extracurricular activities also play a role.

How many times can I take the SAT Exam?

The amount of times you can take the SAT exam depends on the policy of the university you apply to. Most schools will say 3 times is the maximum number of times you can take the SAT before they start averaging scores. The University of California schools, however, say that there is no limit as to the number of times you can take the SAT. They will simply look at your best score.
