Choose Your Test
When you register, you can register for either the SAT Reasoning Test (formerly known as SAT I: Reasoning Test) or up to three SAT Subject Tests (formerly known as SAT II: Subject Tests).
SAT Reasoning Test
The SAT Reasoning Test is a measure of the critical thinking skills you'll need for academic success in college. The SAT is typically taken by high school juniors and seniors, and is administered seven times a year domestically and six times a year internationally.
SAT Subject Tests are designed to measure your knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as your ability to apply that knowledge. Many colleges use Subject Tests for admission, for course placement, and to advise you about course selection. Some colleges specify the Subject Tests they require, while others allow you to choose which tests to take. Subject Tests are offered six times a year.
If you are registering for language tests with listening (November only), you may take one listening test in addition to two other Subject Tests. Although you are registering now for specific Subject Tests, you can always substitute other Subject Tests offered on test day, except for the listening tests. Listening tests are only available in November.
Please note: You cannot take The SAT Reasoning Test and SAT Subject Tests during the same test administration.
