SAT Verification Services

An answer verification service is available for every paper and pencil SAT administration. Depending on when and where you take the SAT, you will receive either the Question-and-Answer Service (QAS) or the Student Answer Service (SAS).

Both services can provide valuable insights to help you practice and prepare if you plan to retake the SAT. If you order a service, its information will be available online with your score report.

If you're eligible for an SAT fee waiver, you can get the QAS or SAS for free.

If you're taking the SAT in California or New York, you can find more information about scores and testing in Required Information for Students Testing in California or New York State.

Hand Score Verification

If your score is very different from what you expected, you might have made an obvious mistake in marking your answers. In this case, we can attempt to rescore your test by using hand score verification.

The hand score verification process is performed only once per test.
