SAT School Day Test
On (date to be announced), all 11th-grade students will participate in a statewide SCHOOL DAY administration of the SAT exam.

SAT Recommendations from the College Board
Before Test Day
Make sure you have two No. 2 pencils and a soft eraser. A No. 2 pencil is required to answer the essay and the multiple-choice questions. Mechanical pencils are not allowed. Pens are not allowed.
Have your SAT Admission Ticket and acceptable photo ID ready. You will need your Admission Ticket and photo ID for admission to the test center.
Prepare snacks to bring with you. Although food or beverages cannot be opened in the test room, you may stow them under your chair or desk and consume them outside the test room during breaks. A healthy snack will go a long way in keeping you alert during the entire test.
Be well-rested and ready to go. Get a good night's sleep the night before the test and eat a good breakfast that morning.
Check to see if your test center is open. Visit www.collegeboard.com on Friday for a list of test center closings.
The morning of the test, if there is bad weather in your area, tune into your local media (like you do for school closing announcements) to make sure that your test center has not been affected.
Plan ahead to arrive at the test center on time. Unless otherwise noted on your Admission Ticket, arrive at the test center no later than 7:45 a.m. Testing should start at approximately 8 a.m.
On Test Day
Give yourself plenty of time to get to the test center. Consider traffic, weather conditions, flat tires, and anything else that could slow you down.
Be sure to test at the center indicated on your Admission Ticket. Even if you're scheduled to test at a center that was not your first choice, you are only guaranteed admission to the test center listed on your Admission Ticket. Seating is very limited at other test centers.
Use breaks to eat or drink any snacks you have brought with you. You will have several breaks during the test. Use them to relax and eat a snack, so you can stay focused.
Make sure you use a No. 2 pencil. You must fill in the entire circle darkly and completely. If you change your response, erase it as completely as possible. It is very important that you follow these instructions when filling out your answer sheet.
Pace yourself during the test. Remember, each question counts the same. If you find yourself spending too much time on one question, move on to the next question.
