How easy is it to get standby testing?

<p>Is it pretty likely to get to test?</p>

<p>I think I should take the test one more time (unfortunately) and should spend some serious time this week studying. Of course, I don't want to do this if I will not actually take the test.</p>

<p>I doubt that one week's worth of studying will improve your scores.</p>

<p>You frigin idiot. Is that the only thing you can come up with? Way to go answeing the question. What if this fellow made a dire mistake, a screw up. Shaded wrong bubbles or maybe he wrote an off topic essay. Stop trying to be cool and try and be helpful here.
And the 10 odd people I talked to, because I myself am on standby, said they had no problems so you should be good to go.</p>

<p>It depends on where you're testing, I assume, but the first time I took the SAT, I took it standby and had no problems getting in. Chances are you'll get to test.</p>

<p>@Nerdlings, I disagree. One week's worth of studying can improve one's performance, given that the student in question isn't taking the SAT for the first time. Or at least that's how it was for me.</p>

<p>It will actually depend on the number of test booklets they have. They usually have some extra to cater for standby test takers. You better show up early so that you are on top of the standby list in case there too many people in your case. You should also have a mean of payment (credit card) handy, although I am not sure this required in the USA.</p>
