What time does the SAT start and end?

Hey everyone, I have my SAT test coming up and I'm curious about what time the test usually starts and ends. I want to make sure I have enough time to get there and know when I'll be done. Can anyone fill me in?

Hey there! The SAT usually starts around 8:00 am, so you'll want to arrive at your testing center by 7:30 am to give yourself enough time to check-in and get settled. The entire test takes a little over 3 hours, including breaks. Most students are ready to leave by about 12:00 pm, as there are always some logistics to take care of after you finish, like handing in your test booklet.

Good luck with your SAT!
