Tips for Your Students
Help students do their best on the SAT
You can help students do their best on test day with sound advice and up-to-date information. Students can find important information for test day on their Admission Tickets.
Emphasize the importance of being organized and well rested on test day. Advise students to plan in advance and to:
- Organize ID, Admission Ticket, pencils, calculators, and other supplies
- Get a good night's sleep
- Eat breakfast
- Double-check for everything they need before leaving home
- Arrive early—by 7:45 a.m.—at the test center
The test administration staff reserves the right to collect and hold cell phones and other prohibited electronic devices during the test administration, including during break periods.
If a student's device makes noise, he or she is seen using it or attempting to access it at any time, including breaks, he or she will be dismissed immediately, the student’s scores can be canceled, and the device may be confiscated. The College Board is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items, including electronic devices, while a student is in the test center.
