Sunday Testing

How to request a Sunday test date

Some test centers offer SAT Subject Tests on Sunday rather than Saturday for students whose religious observance does not allow them to test on Saturday. In most cases, Sunday test dates immediately follow each Saturday test date.

Restrictions of Sunday testing

Sunday testing is:

  • Restricted to students who cannot test on Saturday for religious reasons
  • Not available for makeup testing, except for Sunday test center closings
  • Not available in India or Pakistan

Testing on both Saturday and Sunday is not permitted. If a student takes the test on both Saturday and Sunday, scores from only one test administration will be reported.

Registering for Sunday testing

Only religious reasons are accepted for requests to test on Sunday. This means that Sunday testers must provide a letter from their clergy that:

  • Explains the religious observance behind the request
  • Is printed on stationery from the house of worship
  • Is signed by a member of the clergy

The first time students register for Sunday testing, they must:

  • Register using the paper Registration Form
  • Enter the number 01000 for the first-choice test center code and leave the second choice blank
  • Include the signed letter from their clergy with the Registration Form—required for every paper registration
  • Mail their registration by the regular postmark deadline (must be received by the deadline for international registrations)

Once a student has registered for Sunday testing, he or she can re-register online or by phone for additional test dates. However, mailed registrations must always include the letter from the clergy, even for students who have previously registered for Sunday testing.

If a Sunday test center must close, the SAT Program arranges for a makeup and notifies the registered students. Normal makeup policies apply.
