Questions about SAT Subject Tests
Why should students take SAT Subject Tests?
Some universities require a certain number of SAT Subjects Tests to be taken in order to meet the application requirements. It is important to check the individual requirements of each university about SAT Subject Tests. A higher score in the Subject Tests will always weigh more favorably towards acceptance. It is important to note that SAT Subject Tests are separate from the SAT Reasoning Test, which assesses Critical Reading, Writing, and Math.
How should a student choose which SAT Subject Tests to take?
Students should generally choose SAT Subject Tests according to their academic strengths, especially subjects that they have had the most experience with in order to maximize their chances for a high score. Each Subject Test has its own syllabus and students should prepare in advance.
Some universities not only require a certain number of SAT Subject Tests, but also require tests in certain fields of study. For example, Massachusetts Institute of Technology requires students to take two Subject Tests: Math I or Math II, and one in Physics, Chemistry, or Biology.
