Let's talk about how to retrieve your SAT scores. So you've taken the SAT, hopefully you have a collegeboard account. Sometimes people take the SAT and don't have a collegeboard account, if they have registered I think by phone or by mail, but if you have a collegeboard account then your scores will come out usually about two and a half weeks after the test. Of course if you go to collegeboard.com you can look at this table where it shows you exactly when scores will be coming out. But it's usually about two and a half weeks after you've taken the test. So when the scores come out, you can just go to collegeboard.com, and it'll show you your scores. You'll also get a copy of it in the mail, but what you find on collegeboard.com is a little bit more info. They'll tell you how many you got right and wrong in each section, they'll also break it down a little bit so you can see what gave you trouble, you know, was it this part of math or that part of math that gave you trouble. They don't break it down so small you can't say it was, you know, fractions that gave you trouble but they do break it down into certain blocks so you can say, oh I need help in geometry or whatever, so that's useful. Not right away but eventually you can also view your essay that you wrote for your SAT on collegeboard.com. So that's very useful, because you can review it and see how you want, if you're going to retake it, how you want to improve it for next time. If you don't have a collegeboard account, then you'll actually get it in the mail and that comes a little bit after. It's not two and a half weeks, it probably like another week or so that you'll get it, or that they'll mail it out and then it take a few days for you to get it in the mail, so that's the other way that you can get your scores.
