A: A good SAT score depends on who you are and what you want to do with your score.

You can focus on improving those areas and take the SAT again. If you are a senior applying to college, a good score depends on where you’re applying and what the rest of your application says about you (like your GPA, your extracurricular, and your personal essay, etc.)  Typically, universities’ websites mention a range of scores that they typically select a majority of their class. This range is a good indicator of score that meets that university’s criteria. Therefore, visit the website of the colleges/universities you are interested to apply to and check out their admission requirement.

A: There is no limit to the number of times you can take the SAT. You can take the SAT as many times as you like. We conduct these exams five times in a year, you can start writing it from grade 8 and technically, a student has 25 attempts until class 12.
