General Information About the SAT Subject Tests

Subject Tests (formerly called SAT II) are 1-hour exams that fall into 5 subject categories: English, Mathematics, History, Science, and Foreign Language. The Subject Tests have grown in importance, partially due to the controversy of the SAT I's fairness, and is now a major component to most schools' admissions and course placement processes. Students are often required to take 3 SAT II subject tests, in addition to the SAT I.
