SAT Subjects Options

        The SAT Subject Tests, formerly referred to as SAT II: Subject Tests, are designed to measure the knowledge and skills in particular academic subject areas. The SAT Subject Tests give you the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of content in specific subjects, such as English, history, mathematics, science, and various foreign languages. 

        Many colleges use the SAT Subject Tests for admission, for 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. To decide which SAT Subject Tests to take, please check with colleges' admissions requirements first.
