Test Guidance

When should I take the SAT Subject Tests?

You should take the SAT Subject Tests right after you’ve completed one of the test-prep courses, because the material will still be fresh in your mind. You can sit the tests on the same day as the SAT however since not all Subject Tests are offered on every test date, you will need to check to find out when the international test dates are. 

Balance this with US university application deadlines. If you’re interested in applying Early Decision or Early Action to any university, you are advised to take the SAT Subject Tests by Autumn of Year 13. For normal decision applications, some universities accept Subject Test scores through the January administration. Use the US University Search to look up policies.

What is it like to take SAT Subject Tests?

All SAT Subject Tests are one-hour, multiple-choice tests. In any given sitting you can take 1, 2 or 3 tests. You choose the tests that you want to take and how many you would like to take per sitting (up to 3). Whilst you will need to give this information when you register, you are free to change which tests and the number of tests that you want to take on test day.

Is it compulsory to take the SAT Subject Tests if I've already taken other university admission tests (e.g. SAT or ACT)?

Yes - for most Ivy League and competitive universities. When in doubt, call the university and speak to the admissions department. Please note that even if you are taking the ACT you will likely still be required to do SAT Subject Tests.

SAT Subject Tests are the only US admission tests where you choose the tests that best showcase your achievements and interests, so by taking one or more SAT Subject Tests, you have an opportunity to highlight your unique strengths or areas of interest. If you’re interested in particular subjects or programs of study, this is a great opportunity for you to enhance your admission credentials and send a strong message to universities about your talents.

Where do I sit the SAT Subject Tests?

SAT Subject Tests are administered at the same test centres as the SAT. Visit the Register page to find out where you can take SAT Subject Tests and to sign up early to get a seat at the nearest location.

Does Score Choice apply to SAT Subject Tests?

Yes. Score Choice is an optional feature that allows students to choose which SAT Subject Test scores they’d like to send to universities, in accordance with each universities’s policy. If Score Choice is not used, all scores are sent to the selected score recipients. Students should still feel comfortable sending all scores, since most universities consider a student’s best scores.

What is the scoring?

Each test is scored between 200-800 points

What subjects can you help me prepare for?

  • Math I
  • Math II
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • U.S. History
