SAT Exam Registration

 You may apply for a fee waiver through the Guidance Office if you cannot afford the test fee. To be eligible for fee waivers for your college applications, you must first have used a fee waiver for an SAT I or SAT II test.
Special testing is available only for students who cannot take a test on Saturday, because of religious observance. Your application for permission to take the exam on Tuesday must include a letter on your cleric's letterhead stationery, signed by your cleric. Tuesday test dates are usually immediately following each Saturday test date, but check the bulletin carefully.
Students with Disabilities may be able to receive special accommodations based on their disability. Eligibility requirements for special accommodations are explained in Information for Students with Special Needs and in registration materials available in the Special Education Office.
Standby Testing is a possibility for students who miss the late registration deadline. There is never a guarantee that you will actually be seated for an exam as a standby. Test centers accept standbys, on a first-come basis only, if they have sufficient space, testing materials and staff. Avoid standby testing if at all possible! Consult the SAT bulletins for more detailed information.
The name you use when registering for every SAT I and SAT II test, must be the exact same name as is listed on your college applications and your high school transcript. If it is not the same, you risk your records becoming separated.
A Social Security Number is required for accurate test identification, as well as for many college applications. All juniors who do not have a Social Security number, should obtain an application from their District Social Security Office. (Bring your birth certificate and two pieces of identification with your signature. Locations for the Social Security Centers are listed in your telephone directory.)
Strategy: The SAT I and SAT II test scores include a correction factor to discourage guessing. One point is received for each question answered correctly and a fraction of a point is lost for each question that is incorrectly answered. There is no penalty for omitting a question,. One should only guess at the answer to a question if one can eliminate some of the choices. Random guessing with no knowledge of any of the choices is unlikely to increase a score.
