SAT Results

You can expect to receive your SAT results around 2 weeks from your initial test date. The exact timelines may vary according to your exact SATdates due to the volume of candidates on each individual test day but 13 days is a good rule of thumb if you’re planning ahead.

SAT dates are usually given on a Saturday and SAT results are usually given on the 2nd Friday after your test date. However, summer test dates (June dates) usually take longer at 5 weeks, due to a large number of test takers at this time so be sure to check your SAT dates closely depending on your own schedule.  

If you take your test on a school date (instead of Saturday), you can expect your SAT results to take a little longer, generally between 21-28 days after your exam.
