What to Bring on Digital SAT Test Day

There are only a few things you really need to bring on test day and a lot of things you'll be better off leaving at home. Be sure to bring:

  • Your fully charged testing device with the Bluebook™ application installed (see detailed device requirements).
  • Face covering (if required at your test center).
  • Your up-to-date admission ticket.
  • Acceptable photo ID.
  • Pencils or pens for scratch work.
  • An acceptable calculator for use on the Math section of the test (there will be an embedded calculator available to use within Bluebook).
  • Epinephrine auto-injectors (like EpiPens) are permitted without the need for accommodations. They must be placed in a clear bag and stored under the student’s desk during testing. For policies on other medications and medical devices, contact Services for Students with Disabilities.

Nice to Have

  • A watch without an audible alarm (The Bluebook application has a built-in timer that tells you exactly how much time you have left, but you might still want to time your break.)
  • A charging cable if your testing device can’t hold a charge for 3 hours.
  • A bag or backpack.
  • A drink or snacks (for your break).


How do I print my digital SAT admission ticket?

If you've registered for an upcoming digital SAT administration, five days before your test date you’ll see your registration listed on the Bluebook™ homepage. You'll need to complete exam set up, then the app will generate your admission ticket. From the screen in Bluebook, you can either email the ticket to yourself to present on your phone during check-in or print it to bring on test day.
