Many universities are now requiring (or “recommending”) that applicants take at least two of the SAT II Subject tests. In addition, high scores on these assessments can help to enhance your college application and/or potentially place you out of an introductory college course.

There are many topics for the SAT II Subject Tests. The most popular of these are: Literature, Math Level 1, Math Level 2, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. There are also tests on US History, World History, French, German, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

These tests are 1 hour each, and students can take up to three different tests in one day. Go to College Board for more info.
