Get Into College .... About the SAT Subject Tests

Share |
SAT Subject Tests are an hour long and consist entirely of multiple-choice questions. Subject tests are designed to test a student's grasp of a specific academic subject. They are sometimes considered more difficult that the regular SAT, but that is a misconception. They are simply more specific. Most students that take SAT Subject Tests have a strong grasp of the material being covered, and as such, do quite well on the exam. There are less tricks and traps on the Subject Tests, as they tend to test content and knowledge instead of principles and reading comprehension.Why Take Them?

Most selective colleges require one to three SAT Subject Tests. Any student that is interested in a top-ranked program will probably have to take SAT Subject tests. Please review your list of target schools (for an idea on how to get a list of target schools, check out the [LINK] Roadmap to College)!

When Should You Take Them?

You can take an SAT Subject Test at any point in your high school career. Many take math Subject Tests in the fall of their senior year. Other tests, like sciences and languages, should be taken right after finishing related subjects in school. For example, if you know your University will require a science SAT Subject test, you should take SAT Subject – Biology directly after your high school biology class, regardless of the year you take it.
