Who should take SAT II Subject Tests? Students applying to highly competitive colleges and universities should check with the individual institutions for specific information regarding testing requirements for admission.

What are SAT II Subject Tests? Students take the SAT Subject Tests to demonstrate to college and universities their mastery of specific subjects such as English, history, mathematics, science and foreign languages. The content of each test is not based on any one approach or curriculum but rather evolves to reflect current trends in high school course work.

The SAT Program offers 20 Subject Tests that fall into general subject areas.

  1. English (Literature)
  2. History & Social Studies (US History, World History)
  3. Mathematics (Mathematics Level I, Mathematics Level 2)
  4. Science (Biology E/M, Chemistry, Physics)
  5. Languages (Chinese, French, German, Modern Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Spanish)

Students can take up to three SAT Subject Tests on a single test date. Students cannot take the SAT Subject Tests and the SAT Reasoning Test during the same test administration.
