SAT* Subject Tests Prep

What are the SAT Subject Tests?

SAT Subject Tests are standardized, national admissions tests given on individual subjects. SAT Subject Tests are high school level tests that cover high school level content. They are usually taken in order to highlight your area of achievement or to improve credentials for admission into college. SAT Subject Tests give you an opportunity to present your strong skills in an academic area, demonstrate knowledge learned outside the classroom, or show your preparedness for a certain college major or program. They generally help to provide a more accurate picture of your academic background.

Colleges may use SAT Subject Test scores to make admissions decisions, place you into courses, fulfill basic college requirements, or give credit for introductory-level courses.
