Upcoming Tests

Upcoming SAT Reasoning and Subject Tests

The calendar for the 2009-2010 SAT Reasoning Test and Subject Tests is now available, with registration open for all dates except June 2010. If the colleges to which you are applying require Subject Tests, you can check this list of subjects and dates offered to help you plan accordingly. The new Score Choice option allows students to send scores from selected test dates, rather than the cumulative reports of the past. However, some schools will require students to send all scores from all tests, so it is very important this year to check each college’s policy this year.

Upcoming ACT

Consider taking a mock ACT at a nearby test center to determine if this is a better test for you, as most colleges will accept either the ACT (with or without writing, depending on the college) or the SAT. Some exceptions may occur, so check the schools on your list to determine each college’s specific testing requirements.
