What are SAT Subject Tests and why are they important?

SAT Subject Tests include more than 20 different tests focusing on specific disciplines, such as English, history and the social sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, and foreign languages. Each subject test lasts 1 hour and consists entirely of multiple-choice questions.

Unlike the SAT Subject Tests, the SAT is largely a test of verbal and math skills. Although you need to know vocabulary and a few formulas, it’s primarily designed to measure how well you read and think, rather than what you know.

The SAT Subject Tests, however, are designed to measure what you know about specific subjects. Sure, critical reading and thinking skills play a part; but the main purpose of the Subject Tests is to determine exactly what you know about math, history, chemistry, and so on.

The SAT Subject Tests are offered nationally every year in October, November, December, January, May and June.
