The SAT II Subject Tests allow candidates to showcase their knowledge and competencies in specific subjects. Candidates can take Subject Tests for Mathematics, Languages, Sciences, History and/or Literature.

Why take the SAT II Subject Tests?

Some colleges require the SAT II Subject Tests for admissions or course placements. Generally, candidates take 2 or 3 SAT II Subject Tests, especially if one is applying to highly competitive colleges. Most colleges expect at least a 780 SAT II score.

It is greatly recommended that candidates sit for subject tests that they are proficient in. Taking SAT II subject tests relevant to their intended majors, would act as an advantage.

SAT II Subject Tests are not be available on all test dates. Language-based tests, especially, can be offered as infrequently as once a year. This can make choosing SAT II Subject Tests particularly tricky, it is best to consult a professional before finalising your choice of subjects.
