Starting Next Year, Students Can Take SAT in the Summer

Remember the SATs when you were in school?  Or should I say the “dreaded” SATs?  Starting next year, college-bound students will have the option to take the SATs in August. This is the first time in decades that the standardized test will be offered over the summer instead of the school year.  The other change was the elimination of the January SAT test date, as of 2018. Officials say “This change will provide students with earlier opportunities to take the SAT before submitting college applications, and more time to focus on coursework, school activities, and college applications in the fall of their senior year.”
