SAT Weekend

All students taking the SAT on the weekend will test with Bluebook. Here’s how it works. 

Before Test Day

  1. Download the Bluebook exam app on the device you’ll use on test day. If you’re testing on a school-managed device, this step may be completed for you. Proceed to step 2. 
  2. Log in to the app with your College Board account and complete exam setup. Bluebook will load your exam onto your device and generate your admission ticket.
  3. Print your admission ticket or email it to yourself.
  4. On the application homepage, go to Practice and Prepare and try a test preview or a full-length practice test.

What to Bring on Test Day

  • Your fully charged device. You must have the app installed and exam setup complete. 
  • Your admission ticket. You’ll show this to the proctor when you check in. 
  • An approved photo ID
  • A power cord and/or a portable charger. We cannot guarantee you’ll have access to an outlet during testing. Your device should be able to hold a charge for 3–4 hours. 
  • A pencil or pen. Scratch paper will be provided—do not bring your own. 
  • An approved calculator. There’s a graphing calculator built into the app, but you can bring your own if you like. 
  • An external mouse if you use one. 
  • An external keyboard if you use one (you can only use external keyboards with tablets—not laptops).

Taking the Test

  • On test day, arrive at your test center 15 minutes before your test begins. 
  • Your proctor will check your admission ticket and photo ID when you get to your room. 
  • When you sit down, you’ll connect to Wi-Fi, log in to Bluebook, and complete a short check-in process in the app.
  • Before the test, your proctor will read some short instructions, collect any prohibited items, and give you a start code. You’ll enter the code into Bluebook and the test will begin.  
  • The digital SAT has 2 sections—Reading and Writing, and Math. 
  • Each section has 2 parts called modules, and each module is timed separately. You can move back and forth between questions in a module and review your answers until time expires.
  • Between sections, you’ll get a break. Follow all instructions on the Bluebook break page.
  • At the end of the test, Bluebook will submit your answers automatically. Do not close your device until you see the “Congratulations!” screen.
  • If your submission fails for any reason, you’ll see instructions in the app to complete your submission.
