The S.A.T. is the test that people take generally when they're applying to go to college. The S.A.T. is offered seven times per year, and ordinarily it's taken in the junior or senior year of high school. Of course it's also taken later than that when people are applying to go back to college after they've already finished high school. The test is offered seven times per year, several times in the fall and then several in the spring. The test takes about four hours to take, and it's usually on Saturday morning. When you're registering for it, you want to register a fair bit in advance. The way to register is to go to www.collegeboard.com. And you want to register a good few months in advance. The registration deadline is about a month before the test. And again, you can find the exact dates on the website. If you forget to register as of a month before the test you can pay an extra fee for a late registration. And that goes until about two weeks before the test. And then finally, if even you miss that deadline you can go as a stand-by, even the day of the test. You just have to make sure to have all the right paperwork and all that. And again, it's explained on the website. If taking it on a Saturday doesn't work for religious reasons, then they do offer Sunday tests. And you just have to demonstrate that you're doing it for religious reasons.
