Other Deadlines to Remember

Before scheduling your SAT, there are a few factors to consider. Here are some other deadlines to keep in mind when planning your SAT timeline. 

When to Start Studying for the SAT

You should give yourself two or three months to study before taking the SAT.  Anytime longer may cause you to forget material. Under two months may not be enough time to thoroughly study every section and take practice tests for the SAT. 

Build your SAT study schedule around your life to maintain balance. Make sure to give yourself realistic blocks of time between studying to recuperate and complete your daily tasks to avoid burnout. You should also keep in mind the possibility of retaking the test if you are not happy with your initial results, and give yourself enough time to do so. 

SAT Results

You can expect to receive your SAT results about five weeks after you’ve taken your test. Here are the SAT score release dates in correspondence with the 2022 - 2023 SAT test dates:

Final Thoughts

Before scheduling your SAT dates, make sure you’ve given yourself enough time to study before. Take into consideration your daily responsibilities such as work, school, volunteering, and getting plenty of rest. You should also keep in mind the possibility of retaking the test if you need to improve your initial results when scheduling your SAT.

The SAT dates and deadlines for 2022 - 2023 we’ve provided above are final, although there will be more 2023 test dates announced by the college board in the near future.
