standardized test strategy is provided by the admissions lady
SAT and ACT tests have different timing which can affect test taking

Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based tests that allow you to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where you excel. These are the only national admission tests where you choose the tests that best showcase your achievements and interests.


  • There are 20 SAT Subject Tests

  • Key areas of the test include: English, history, languages, mathematics and science

  • Most students take the SAT for the first time during the spring of their junior year

  • Students take subjects test a second time during the fall of the senior year

TEST OPTIONAL SCHOOLS has a list of institutions that are "test optional," "test flexible" or otherwise de-emphasize the use of standardized tests by making admissions decisions about substantial numbers of applicants who recently graduated from U.S. high schools without using the SAT or ACT.
