SAT Subject Tests are subject specific college admissions exams. They are designed by the same company (College Board) that publishes the SAT and AP exams. There are twenty different subject tests available in the areas of English, Math, Science, and foreign language. They are one hour long multiple choice tests that are given on the dates that the SAT is given- but, not all twenty tests are offered on the same date.
SAT Subject Tests are an admission data requirement for many elite, top schools. Most of these top schools require two subject test scores.
Students in grades 10th and 11th should consider taking one, two, or three subject tests this June if they are "applying high." Strategically, it is best that a student plans to take a subject test in an area that they just completed an AP class and AP exam in.
Students, we encourager you to reach out to your college planner if you have any questions about these tests. You must register for these tests just like you would register for the SAT at: www.collegeboard.org
