SAT Subject Tests

Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based tests that allow students to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where they excel. These are the only national admission tests where students choose the tests that best showcase their achievements and interests.

SAT Subject Tests allow students to differentiate themselves in the college admission process or send a strong message regarding readiness to study specific majors or programs in college. In conjunction with admission credentials (your high school record, SAT scores, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a more complete picture of student’s academic background and interests.

Some colleges also use Subject Tests to place students into the appropriate courses. Based on your performance on the test(s), you could potentially fulfill basic requirements or receive credit for introductory-level courses.
There are 20 SAT Subject Tests in five general subject areas: English, history, languages, mathematics and science (2014 collegeboard.org).

Some competitive colleges require the SAT Subject Tests in the admissions process. Students should check the college admissions requirements to see if SAT Subject tests are required. Students are encouraged to take the SAT Subject Tests at the end of their junior year or the very beginning of the senior year and should speak with their counselor to determine the best time to take these tests.
