The SAT® Subject Tests (Scholastic Aptitude Test II) are completely different from the SAT® reasoning test. Strong SAT® Subject scores strengthen your application and complement the SAT® reasoning score. It shows colleges and universities that you excel in certain subjects. SAT® subject test is a one-hour timed test focused on a specific subject. There are 20 SAT® Subject Tests in five general subject areas: English, History, Languages, Mathematics and Science. 

The test is administered six times a year in India and may be attempted more than once. Language Tests with listening are offered once a year, in November only. Different schools have different SAT® score requirements. Your scores better your chances of getting admission into a particular U.S. university. Registration for the SAT® requires a valid passport and can be
