For Indian students, the ideal time to start the SAT preparation would be after 10th-grade board exams. Students will be a little free for at least the next three months after completing the 10th exams before they get packed with 11th and 12th-grade school tasks. Most of the topics tested in the SAT are covered in the 10th class, so it is neither too early nor too late. Students will also get time for 2nd or 3rd attempt if required.
