The test called the SAT has been around for many years. Most folks remember that high school students take it in their junior years as a part of the process of applying to college. But did you know that there are now many more tests that high school students can use to show colleges what they have learned?
The SAT Subject tests are one-hour, multiple-choice tests created by the College Board to allow high school students to demonstrate their abilities in specific areas of study. These tests are offered in the sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), math, history (US and World), English Literature, and many languages including Latin, French, Spanish, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Many, but not all, colleges require applicants to take two or three of these exams as part of their application. Some colleges require specific ones, such as Physics and Math, for application to an engineering program for instance.
