Using Your Score

The main way students use their SAT School Day scores is sending them to colleges as part of their application. But there are several other ways to use your score that you should be aware of.


  • Make a study plan.

    Know when you're taking the SAT and build a study plan to make the most of your time before the test. Set aside specific times to practice, watch instructional videos, and focus on the areas you need to work on. Set concrete, manageable goals.
  • Send scores to colleges and scholarship programs.

    Your online score report includes a link to the Send Scores page. You can also see a step-by-step guide to sending scores.
  • Explore paths to take after high school.
