Inside the Test

Test day is here, and you’ve got everything you need: photo ID, pencils, calculator, snack — and the confidence that comes from knowing what to expect.

You’re On Your Way

One of our biggest goals in changing the SAT is to make sure it’s highly relevant to your future success. The new test will be more focused on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It will measure:

  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college

If you think the key to a high score is memorizing words and facts you’ll never use in the real world, think again. You don’t have to discover secret tricks or cram the night before.

The same habits and choices that lead to success in school will help you get ready for the SAT. The best way to prepare for the test is to:

  • Take challenging courses.
  • Do your homework.
  • Prepare for tests and quizzes.
  • Ask and answer lots of questions.

In short, take charge of your education and learn as much as you can.
