About SAT II

Students can select the Subject Test(s) and can take up to three tests in one sitting. Most SAT Subject Tests are offered on the same day as the regular SAT Reasoning Test; therefore, students cannot take both the SAT Reasoning Test and Subject Tests on the same day.

Twenty SAT Subject Tests are conducted to test the knowledge of students in five general subject areas viz., English, History, Languages, Mathematics and Science.
