So if you took the SAT a million years ago and thought that by walking away from the testing site you were done with that phase of your life forever, you haven't been trying to continue your education.

What if you went right into a trade, bypassed college, and are now considering enrolling in an undergraduate program? Do you even remember what test you took? Or what a good SAT score is?

You'll need those SAT score reports pronto, and here's how to go about getting them.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Remember whether you took the ACT or SAT in high school. Here's a hint: Your ACT score will be a two digit number from 0 – 36. Your SAT score will be a three or four digit score between 600 – 2400. However, since the SAT has changed quite a bit in the last twenty years, the score you may have received in the 70's would be scaled a bit differently now.
