About the SAT II Subject Tests

The SAT Subject Tests is the name for 20 multiple choice standardized tests given on individual subjects. A student typically chooses which tests to take depending upon college entrance requirements for the schools to which he or she is planning to apply. Every test is a one-hour timed test.

A student may take up to three SAT Subject Tests on any given test date. Most SAT subject tests are offered on the same dates as the regular SAT, except for the March administration.

Though not all schools require the SAT II Subject Tests, some of the most competitive US colleges require them as part of their application.
