SAT Test Dates 2023

With the success of the first online SAT, Suite of Assessments, in November 2021, the college board has decided to conduct SATs digitally worldwide from 2023.

The digital SAT for international students will be piloted from march 2023, whereas in the US, it will be offered from 2024.

You will see some changes with Digital mode of SAT, such as:-

  • The digital SAT will be shorter, i.e., two hours instead of three, with more time per question.

  • It will feature shorter reading passages, with one question linked to each. The passages will reflect a broader range of topics representing the works students read in college.

  • Calculators will be allowed in the entire Math section.

  • Students and educators will get scores back in a few days instead of weeks.

  • Students can use their device (laptop or tablet) or a school-issued device. If a student does not have a device, the College Board will supply one on test day. If students lose connectivity, they won't lose their work or time while reconnecting.

The SAT will be conducted seven times a year for students internationally. Students can take the exam as often as they wish and send their best scores to the university/college. The SAT exam dates fall in January, March, May, June, October, November, and December.

Students can already register for the new digital SAT. The first testing date for the digital SAT is March 11, 2023, and the deadline to apply for the same is February 10, 2023. And here are the dates with their application deadlines:
