The SAT Subject Tests (Subject Tests, also known as SAT II’s, are only offered by College Board.)

The UC system no longer requires that students take SAT Subject Tests. However, some competitive UC programs like Engineering are likely to recommend that applicants take SAT Subject Tests. Make sure to check each individual campus website.

Some private colleges require that students take two (in some cases three) Subject tests, which are designed to measure a student’s achievement in a specific subject. The tests should be chosen from different subject areas. Some private colleges will not require the subject tests if a student has taken the ACT instead of SAT Reasoning test. Check each individual college website.

Test-Free Colleges
Colleges recognize that standardized test results are not always a very good indicator of a student’s success in college and later life. There are colleges and universities nationwide that have made standardized tests optional. A list of these colleges can be found at:
