How Many SATs Can You Take in a Day?

I'm thinking about signing my son up for the New SAT plus 2 or 3 subject tests - e.g. Physics, Math I, English. Which tests can be taken on the same day? For example, can he take the SAT + any 1 subject test ? 2 Subject tests on the same day? 3? My son is a Junior, who just took the (last) old SAT.

OK to Fill in Answer After Time Called?

When the proctor says "pencils down" does that mean you have to put down your pencil right away, or can you just quickly fill in the few empty bubbles on your sheet? I know you're probably "technically" not supposed to do this, but will I get in trouble?

Are silly mistakes inevitable?

Hello! I got a 33 composite on my December ACT and will be taking it again in April. I know it's a great score but I really want to aim for a 35 at least.

IELTS vs TOEFL

I'm an international student and I'm thinking of applying to top US colleges. I searched everywhere but no one seems to know if I should take the IELTS or TOEFL (besides the SAT). Some of my teachers say US colleges favor TOEFL, others say there's no difference. If the second is true, I prefer takin...

What happens if I use a number 3 pencil on the SAT/ACT?

When I was taking the ACT, I realized halfway through the test that the pencils I had grabbed as I was running out the door this morning were No. 3 pencils instead of No. 2. Argh! Will this affect the grading of my test? I made sure I'd marked in my answers really dark after I finished each section....

How can I become more consistent on practice tests?

I'm starting to do practice tests for specific sections, and I am having trouble getting consistent scores. I did three math sections and got a 22, 26, then 24 . When I look at the problems, the ones I'm getting wrong aren't of a similar type - it seems random. On English I can take one practice te...

Wrong high school on SAT Admission Ticket - still able to take the test?

When I do practice problems and practice tests I usually use the calculator on my laptop since it's accessible. I know the SAT doesn't let you use computers during the test, but I don't have access to a good calculator to bring with me on test day. How important is a having a calculator and what are...

How can I overcome anxiety and stay calm during the SAT?

This isn't just for the SAT, but I am a very nervous person and cannot handle big situations. The next test is my last chance to score well, and my last 2 real SAT's were 150-200 points below my practice test scores. I feel like my mind cannot focus and I get butterflies inside. I think the nervous...
