Tips for the Night before (and morning of) the SAT
From all of us at A-List, we wish your student the very best of luck on this weekend’s SAT and SAT Subject Tests! Please be sure to share the following tips in preparation for test day.
The night before the exam:
- Relax. Try your best not to cram or study the night before the big day. Trust yourself, your tutors, and all the preparation you have done so far.
- Before you go to sleep, be sure you know your route to the test site. You may want to check for road closures or public transportation changes to ensure you can arrive on time.
- Print your admissions ticket.
- Organize and prepare your bag with your test day essentials (see below).
- Be sure to get a good night’s sleep!
The morning of the exam:
- Wake up early.
- Eat a healthy breakfast.
- Do some light reading to get your brain going—either a newspaper article or a book you love.
- Get your blood flowing by stretching, taking a quick walk or run, or doing some yoga.
What to bring to the test:
- Your admissions ticket
- Acceptable photo ID
- #2 pencils with erasers
- An approved calculator
- EpiPen if needed
- A watch (without an audible alarm)
- Drinks and snacks for your breaks
A comprehensive list of what to bring and what is not allowed at test sites can be found on the College Board site here.
We have the utmost confidence in our students and can’t wait to hear how the test goes. The College Board will begin releasing scores on Friday, September 6th. Do keep us posted. We look forward to learning your student’s results!
