The SAT II: Subject Tests

The SAT Subject Tests, one-hour exams offered by ETS, are also used in admissions.
They test your retentive skills in particular high school courses and are scored on the same scale (200-800) as the SAT Reasoning Test. Some colleges award credit or exemption from required courses on the basis of SAT Subject Tests.

We recommend that you take at least 2 Subject Tests by the end of the fall semester of your senior year. SAT Subject Tests are offered in Literature, Math Level 1, Math Level 2, Biology (Ecological or Molecular), Chemistry, Physics, U.S. History, World History, Chinese, French, German, Modern Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, and Spanish. Your counselors and teachers will help you determine which tests are appropriate for you to take.

You can and should prepare for these tests, so it will be important for you to review class notes and textbooks before the College Board test date. We recommend that no SAT or particular Subject Test be taken more than twice without consulting your college counselor. Any additional administration of these tests might be advised on a case-by-case basis.
