SAT Subject Tests...

THESE ARE THE SAME DATES AS THE REGULAR
 SAT TEST.  YOU CAN ALSO TAKE BOTH TESTS ON THE SAME DATE!

You may be asking yourself, WHY SHOULD I TAKE THE SUBJECT TESTS? Is it worth it? These are valid questions especially since there are additional fees with the subjects tests that range from $46-$72 dollars.

Here are several reasons why you should consider taking the subjects tests:

  • Colleges may require these test scores for specific majors.  This will differentiate you from other applicants.
  • Shows that you have an accomplishment beyond the basic high school curriculum and can add this to your college admission profile.
  • Shows to colleges your interest and commitment to that college and major.
  • Can fulfill a requirement for extra college credit
  • For those students in which English is not their first language, it shows an additional strength on their part.
  • For international students as well, it shows that they are disciplined to do the extra studying in that subject
