There are some of you who won’t be taking the SAT Exam at your high school, but the majority of you will! To avoid stress and being lost on test day, it is preferable if you print down directions to the testing location or enter the address into your phone or GPS the night before. Additionally, you’ll need to find out how to travel to your new testing location immediately if your old one is closed for whatever reason.
Especially if you live in Doha, Make sure you know exactly how you’re going to get to the testing site before you go to bed. Plan ahead of time if you will need to find parking. Check the schedule and make sure your subway/bus/train is running if you rely on public transportation. Look for any road closures. If you’re going with a friend or parent, make sure they know what they need to do as well.
YOUR SAT Exam ENTRY TICKET
Log in to your CollegeBoard account to get it, and remember to print your ticket.
ACTIVE PHOTO ID
Bring your original identification, not a photocopy, and make sure it isn’t expired. For more information, see the CollegeBoard’s list of photo ID requirements.
PENCILS & ERASERS
Mechanical pencils and pens are not permitted on the SAT Exam, including in the essay section. Using the incorrect writing utensil in the multiple-choice sections can have an impact on how your scantron is read, lowering your score. Make sure your pencil erasers are clean and new so you don’t smudge when you erase, them and that both pencils are sharpened.
CALCULATOR– While calculators are not required, they are allowed and will come in handy during the calculator math section.
