Question: When Should I Take the SAT?
Answer:

You typically take the SAT the spring of your junior year or the fall of senior year of high school, although many students opt to start taking it earlier for practice. I recommend taking it once during the spring of your junior year, so you have some room to retake it if you don't like your SAT score. If that happens, retake it in the fall of your senior year so your scores will get to the schools of your choice in time for admissions decisions.
