The SAT can be taken any time starting your freshman year. However, most students take the test in the spring of their junior year. Doing so will give you enough time to take the test twice, which is highly recommended, as 67 percent of students improve their score the second time around.
Once you receive your initial test results in your junior year, you'll know your weak points and can prepare to retake the test if you so choose. If you're not satisfied with your initial score, you can take the test for the second time in the fall of your senior year.
