SAT Subject Test Scores

SAT Subject Tests (previously known as the SAT II Tests) provide colleges information about specific strenghts that students might have. Colleges require between one and three subject tests as part of the application process, but which subject is up to the student. As of 2006, the UC system stopped accepting the SAT Math Level I test and the English Literature test, which had previously been among the most popular tests (hence, the drop in scores due to the best students opting for other exams). Further external comparisons are in progress.  Please note that most SAT Subject Test have too low a sample size for extrapolation to be valid.
