SAT Subject Tests
SAT Subject Tests measure how well a student has mastered a particular high school subject. There are 20 different subject tests and students may register for one, two or three tests on any given test date. Each test is a 60-minute multiple-choice exam.
As of March, 2020, there are no colleges and universities that require Subject Tests. However, there are 12 colleges who recommend the tests. Click here to view the list of colleges who recommend Subject Tests.
It is best to take SAT Subject Tests right after you’ve completed recommended classes because the material will still be fresh in your mind. College Board outlines what classes are necessary to be prepared for each Subject Test. In some cases, this may mean spring of your freshman or sophomore year. However, for the language tests, it is best to take these tests after you’ve studied the language for at least two years.
Every Subject Test is not offered every test date. Please check the website to see which SAT Subject Tests are available on each date.
Tests: 6 (August, October, November, December, May, June)
