2023 ACT and SAT Test Dates

Take the test you prefer ideally four times, to maximize your score, including the mandated test date if applicable in your state. Many colleges start accepting applications July or August 1 of your senior year, so fitting in multiple tests is difficult if your first test isn’t until April of your junior year.
