Test Day Reminders


Get organized:

* Know what to bring and what NOT to bring to the test center

Prepare yourself like an athlete:

* Get plenty of sleep the night before the test. Your brain works
better if you're well rested.
* Eat a good breakfast that morning.


Leave your cell phone at home. If your phone rings during testing, it could cost you your scores!

* We strongly advise you not to bring a cell phone or any other
prohibited electronic device to the test center. If your
electronic device makes any noise, or you are seen using it at
any time -- including breaks -- you may be dismissed
immediately, your scores may be canceled, and the device may
be confiscated.

* This policy applies to any prohibited digital and/or electronic
device such as a BlackBerry(R), pager, iPod(R), MP3 player,
camera or other photographic equipment, or separate timers of
any kind.

Check to see if your test center is open.

* Tune in to your local media, like you do for school
closing announcements.

* Check online for a list of test center closings.

Leave early. Get to the test center no later than 7:45 a.m., unless otherwise noted on your Admission Ticket.

Go to the center listed on your Admission Ticket.

* Even if it's not your first choice, you are only guaranteed
admission to the test center on your Admission Ticket.
* You will be charged an extra fee if you go to a different test
center, and a seat may not be available for you.

Arrange your ride home ahead of time. Your testing may end a little before or after the times listed below. If you are testing with extended time, ask the supervisor for approximate finish times.

* For the SAT, plan on being picked up at approximately 12:45 p.m.
* For SAT Subject Tests(TM), plan on being picked up at the
following approximate times:
- 9:45 a.m. for one test
- 11:15 a.m. for two tests
- 12:30 p.m. for three tests


Keep focused:

* Use breaks to eat or drink any snacks you have brought with you.
* Pace yourself. Each question counts the same. Don't spend too
much time on any one question.

Good luck on test day!
