Although it is not always necessary, since only a very elite group of universities ask for the Subject Tests, now is the time to consider examining yourself in two or three Subject Tests.
Like the SAT, the SAT Subject Tests are type tests, each one scored from 200 to 800. Each exam has a different subject, and students can choose between several options of math, science, humanities, and languages. It is important that you choose topics that are good for you and that are related to your desired studies. In one day you can do up to 3 Subject Tests, and it is important to bear in mind that you can NOT do the Subjects Test and the normal SAT on the same day.
Unless your goal is to enter one of the 25-30 best universities in the country, it is usually not necessary to take the SAT Subject Tests. Only the most elite colleges request two or three of these exams from their applicants as part of the admissions process. However, more universities will accept the SAT Subject, and, although it is not a crucial requirement, getting a good grade (650+) could be positive to strengthen your file
It is highly recommended that you do the Essay section in at least one of your SAT attempts, since some universities might require it as part of their admissions process.
