A DRINK OR SNACK FOR THE BREAK (OPTIONAL)
EXTRA BATTERIES AND/OR BACKUP CALCULATOR AND WATCH (OPTIONAL)
Do not bring your cell phone to the SAT. Students can be kicked out of SAT administrations because they’re caught using their phones—even if not to cheat—or because a phone alarm accidentally goes off. Leave your phone at home, not in your backpack under your desk.
See the CollegeBoard website for more information about what to bring and what not to bring to the SAT.
