Preparing for College

SAT's and Admission for Post-High School Applicant

Question: I was a pretty good student in high school but with hardly any motivation. I didn't really think about going to college. I just wanted to work and make money. I graduated with a 3.4 gpa, but I never took the SAT. Now that I've tried the work world, I realize that without college I'll have a hard time being successful. I have two colleges in mind, but they both require the SAT. Is there any way to take the SAT after graduation, or are their other tests I could use for admissions to these colleges? Thanks!

You can certainly take the SAT after you’ve graduated from high school. Chances are, you will have to go back into a high school building to do soâ€"maybe even you own old schoolâ€"but there are test sites all over the world, so you will have lots of options, even if you’ve moved away from home.
