SAT and ACT registration is now open for the fall 2020 tests, including the August SAT, and there are limited spots available! With the unexpected test cancellations this spring, there has been an increase in demand for the late summer and early fall tests. That’s why it’s important to sign up earlier rather than later, since availability is limited this year.

Registering for a test…easy, right? Yes, it’s easy, but there’s more to succeeding on the SAT and ACT than just showing up and taking it. Strategizing when your student will take the test is an important part of setting them up for success.

At Testive, we want to make sure that your student has the best opportunity to earn the highest score possible on the SAT or ACT. Here are a few strategic points regarding test registration that that will help your student to have a powered-up test-taking plan:

Sign up for at least two tests and up to three.

The ACT announced additional test dates this fall, so your student will have multiple test dates to choose from, even though there were limited opportunities this summer. Whether your student is taking the SAT or ACT, we recommend signing up for multiple tests — at least two, and up to three — as this is the last opportunity to get the highest score that your student needs for college admissions. You shouldn’t wait until after you take your first test to sign up for your next one. Do it all at once.
