SAT II Subject Test Overview
SAT II Subject Tests are 20 multiple-choice standardized tests given by The College Board on individual subjects. They are taken to improve a student's credentials for admission to colleges in the United States. Many colleges use the SAT Subject Tests for admission, course placement, and to advise students about course selection. Some colleges specify the SAT Subject Tests that they require for admission or placement; others allow applicants to choose which tests to take. Students typically choose which tests to take depending upon college entrance requirements for the schools to which they plan to apply.
Many schools don’t require SAT Subject Tests, but most of the most competitive ones do. So, in many case, while the SAT and ACT exams can get you rejected from great schools, but very rarely accepted, the SAT Subject Tests can’t get you rejected from great schools, but they can get you accepted.
SAT Tests Overview
Each Subject Test is an hour long. SAT Subject Tests are generally given six times in any given school year, on the same days and in the same test centers as the SAT — but not all 20 tests are offered on every SAT date. They are all multiple-choice hour-long tests scored on a 200–800 scale.
