You may take the SAT at any of the seven administrations offered through the school year, but most students take the SAT once in the spring of their junior year. That way, they can take the test again in the fall of their senior year to see if they can improve their scores.
Class of 2018: Take the redesigned SAT.
*To get more information on the changes to the new SAT and view sample questions, visit collegereadiness.collegeboard.org.
