SAT Subject Test Prep

High scores in the SAT Subject Tests can give your student that extra edge


SAT Subject Tests are single topic, hour-long tests similar in format to the SAT. However, they differ from the SAT because they are not reasoning tests. Instead, each test is similar to a final exam for an honors level course.


Students should be aware that SAT Subject Tests are not comparable to AP Exams. They are shorter and test at the honors level, not the AP level.


While only 38 colleges require SAT Subject Tests, many selective colleges recommend SAT Subject Tests. And those who do usually require or recommend 2 subject tests. A few colleges or specific programs at colleges require or recommend 3 subject tests.

The College Board offers 20 SAT Subject Tests.

Breakdown of SAT Subject Tests by general topic:

English:                  1

Math:                      2

History:                   2

Sciences:                3

Foreign language:   12

College Admission Tests - Registration & Test Day


College Admission Tests

IMPORTANT ─ Registering for the tests

Important note
Students and parents are frequently confused about how and when to register for the various exams. With recent changes in SAT and ACT testing registration and procedures, including the elimination of same-day registration on the SAT and ACT, it is important to understand what testing agencies require.

Prometheus Tutors recommends that students and families be aware of and follow these registration guidelines:

      • The latest day to register (with multiple late fees) is the Friday, 8 days prior to the test

  • When registering, college test prep (PSAT, SAT, PLAN, ACT, SAT Subject, AP) a student must list his or her identification information (name, date of birth, school, etc.), then on test day the student must present a government or school-issued ID on test day
  • WARNING: Mistakes in information (date of birth, spelling of the name, etc.) and/or lack of ID may result in your student being excluded from the test


Registering for accommodations on admission tests

  • It is the student’s/family’s responsibility to register for testing with accommodations
  • Students registering for testing with accommodations should begin the registration process at least two months prior to the first registration deadline
