Subject SAT Tests are the only national admissions tests that enable students to showcase their achievements and interests. This provides the student with an opportunity to focus on what makes him or her uniquely qualified and to put his or her best foot forward.
Some colleges require or recommend one or more Subject SAT Tests as part of the application process. This may be especially true if you are interested in a specific major or program of study. Your application will also stand out to colleges that don’t require recommended Subject SAT Tests. By taking one or more Subject SAT Tests, you have an opportunity to differentiate yourself and provide a comprehensive picture of your academic abilities and interests. If you are doing well in these courses or taking advanced level courses (e.g., honors, dual enrollment, Advanced Placement, IB), Subject SAT Tests are an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your understanding of the subject area.
