The SAT is administered seven times a year : January, March, May, June, October, November, and December. The October, May, and June dates are the most popular–many students take the exam once in the spring of junior year, and then again in October of senior year. For seniors, the October date is often the last exam that will be accepted for early decision and early action applications.

The exam takes a total of 3 hours without the optional essay. There are 154 questions, so you’ll have 1 minute and 10 seconds per question (by comparison, the ACT has 215 questions and you’ll have 49 seconds per question). With the essay, the SAT takes 3 hours and 50 minutes.
