No test centers are scheduled in New York for the Feb and July test dates.

The Question and Answer Service for the SAT is available in Oct, Jan, and May; for Sunday testing, the Question and Answer Service is available only in May. It includes a copy of your test, the correct answers, and your answers.

To be sure scores from the Oct and Nov SAT administrations are available for use in early decision/early action programs, you may opt to have the College Board send scores to colleges by two-day delivery.

According to the College Board’s formula, test dates fall on the first Saturday in Nov, Dec, May, and Jun; the second Saturday in Oct and Mar; and the fourth Saturday in Jan.

  • The test date is moved one week earlier when Labor Day falls before Sept 5.
  • The test date is moved one week earlier when Easter falls before Mar 30.

  • Subject Tests are not offered in March.
  • Students can take up to three SAT Subject Tests on a single test date. Students cannot take the SAT Subject Tests and the SAT Reasoning Test during the same test administration.
  • Students must indicate which Subject Tests they plan to take when they register for a test. However, they can change which tests they take up to the test date — except for Language Tests with Listening.
  • Students may only use a calculator on the Subject Tests in Mathematics Level 1 and Mathematics Level 2. Both of these tests have some questions that require the use of at least a scientific calculator. Students can take these tests without using a calculator, but it may put them at a disadvantage.
