I was wondering when I should take the SAT, many people say to take it in the Spring of Junior year, but since the SAT only goes until Algebra 2 level math, which I have already done, couldn't I just try taking it in the fall of Junior year instead? That way if I wanted to re-do it, instead of redoing it in the fall of Senior year, I could re-do it in the spring of Junior year.
I personally say take it twice: Spring of Junior + Fall of Senior for most people.
Also SAT Math has covered some Pre-Calc questions before (if you want to get like a 770+). This is from experience as I have already taken the SAT twice (once in 5th grade, and once in 6th grade). I'm very much aware the PSAT doesn't go beyond Algebra 2 (Taken the PSAT 8/9 in 9th, PSAT NMSQT in 10th, planning to do it again in junior fall).
But ultimately it's up to you (I'm also planning to take it junior fall + spring, just to get higher scores)
Also you shouldn't go with the "if I wanted to redo it" mindset, as it is HIGHLY recommended to take it at least twice in high school.
My schedule for for SAT-related tests are:
5th Spring (May): SAT
6th Spring (May): SAT
9th Fall (October): PSAT 8/9 (required at my school, free)
10th Fall (October): PSAT NMSQT (required at my school, free)
11th Fall (October): PSAT NMSQT (required at my school, free) and SAT (about 3 or 4 days apart)
11th Spring (May): SAT
12th Fall (October): SAT (if needed)

@nes_27 I think you should take the PSAT first and if you have you could use that as a study tool for the real SAT. You could absolutely take the SAT in fall of Junior Year so you could use that to study for the Spring one which I believe should be the school day one.
