High schoolers across the country have had Saturday, Oct. 1, circled on their calendars for a long time — the day they’ll take the SAT exam for college admittance.
I know the SAT intimately. I have been running a test-preparation and tutoring company on New York’s Long Island for 12 years. This year I thought it would be valuable to retake the test myself, to remember what students go through.
In April, I registered online (no more snail mail). With a late fee and the option to have my test booklet mailed to me, my fee came to $80.
