How to Register for the SAT

by Krista


How do I start to register for the SAT?


Keep in mind you have to register at least a month before the actual testing day.

Find your local test center to select when you want to write the test (one of the 7 test dates of the year) and where. The you will find the code to your local SAT test center.

I want to register. How do I go about this?

From here there are 3 ways to register for one of the 7 test days of the year.

1. ONLINE



Although these following images are pretty small to see, you'll get the idea of the information you'll be filling out. Step 1 is asking you to enter your student information. This includes things like your name, gender, where you live, when you were born and information on your high school and contact information.



Secondly, you'll have to fill in a parent or guardian's information. This requires mostly name and contact information.



Step 3 of the online process asks for you to come up with a username and password as well as just a question about whose filling out the form.

This is all very simple once you get onto CollegeBoard's site. They do a great job laying all of this out. After the above form, you'll have to go through and outline your interests, college of choice, etc. Then you'll go through by filling in the code you've already acquired for your given test center, the day you wish you write and where.

2. MAIL

  • You must pick up an SAT Registration Booklet, which is available at your school counselor's office. The Registration Form and return envelope are included in the SAT Registration Booklet. For here, you can mail in your cheque of the fee as well as your registration.
  • The address provided if you have lost the return envelope ..
College Board SAT Program
901 South 42nd Street
Mount Vernon, IL 62864
3. STANDBY

According to CollegeBoard you have the option in the very last minute approach of registering by standby. This is found directly on the CollegeBoard website…

To be considered for standby testing, please be present at the test center on test day before 7:45 a.m. You must include payment of a standby fee in addition to the regular fee for the test or tests you wish to take.

To register as a standby, be sure to:

  • Fill

    out the Registration Form completely and be sure to fill in the oval
    for the standby fee in item 18; otherwise, your scores will be delayed.

  • Include
    payment for the test fee, plus the additional standby fee. Payment must
    be in the form of a check, money order, or credit card (American
    Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa). Do not enclose cash. Checks
    and money orders should be made payable to "The College Board."
    Insufficient payment will cause your scores to be delayed.
  • Enclose the completed form and proper payment together in the envelope provided and seal it.
  • Place the appropriate label showing the test month on the envelope.
  • Bring the sealed envelope to the test center and give it to the supervisor when you check in.
  • Bring an acceptable photo ID.

Hope this helps! Best of luck with registration. And why not start to prepare by checking out our great resources: lessons and tests!! There's tons to check out.

    Hello,

    We all know that every nation has it own educational system and considering a student from another destination seeks a deep insight with regard to the evaluation of the profile. Also, to judge the candidates at a common platform few tests were designed that happen to be the parameters which the universities look at to determine the selection of an applicant and is not designed for specific background students.

    A brief note on SAT should help you clear your queries with regard to the same.

    SAT is the benchmark standardized assessment of the critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills students have developed over time and that they need to be successful in college. Nearly every college in America uses the test as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student's college readiness, that is, a Bachelors degree and hence I would recommend you prepare and take the test.

    A subject test though not mandatory, is recommended or required by a good number of universities. If confident of taking the test I would recommend you should consider the same since a good score on the subject test enhances one's profile.

    However, if you plan to take the test by March 2012, registering for the test at the moment is a bit too early. Consider to register for the test at least six weeks before you want to take the test to maximize your chances of being able to take the SAT at your choice of location and time.

    I hope this helps towards the preparation of the test.

    Take care!
