International SAT test dates?

Hi everyone! I'm an international student trying to plan out my SAT. I'm kinda confused with the timeline for international test dates - does anyone know where I can find a reliable schedule? How different are the dates from the U.S. ones, and do I need to register way earlier because of my location?

Hello there! Navigating international SAT test dates sure can be a bit tricky compared to the U.S. schedule. The College Board website should be your go-to source for the most current and reliable test dates for international students. The dates can indeed sometimes differ from the U.S. ones, potentially offering fewer options throughout the year, so planning ahead is key.

It's a good idea to register as early as possible, since you may have limited options for test centers outside of the U.S. and so they can fill up quickly, especially in densely populated areas. As for the registration deadlines, they are usually about a month before the test date, but late registration options are available for an extra fee. Check the deadlines well in advance to avoid any last-minute hassles.

Once you've chosen a test date, get your registration in early to secure a spot at your preferred testing center. And don't forget to consider how the SAT timeline will mesh with your overall college application plan—you'll need to make sure your scores are ready by the deadline to submit them to your colleges.

Wishing you the best of luck with your SAT and admissions journey!
