* Multiple choice scores are normally available within two weeks of each test date, but it can sometimes take up to eight weeks. Scores are processed and added each week, so keep checking if your scores didn’t post on the initial release day. Essay scores are normally available about two days after the multiple-choice scores post.
** Not all SAT Subject Tests are offered on each test date.
