Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. How does the SAT I differ from SAT II?

The SAT I is largely a test of verbal and math skills. You need to know some vocabulary and some formulas for the SAT I, but it’s designed to measure how well you read and think rather than what you know.

The SAT II is very different. It’s designed to measure what you know about specific disciplines. In addition, critical reading and thinking skills are also important in this series of tests, but their main purpose is to determine exactly what you know about various subjects.

2. How do colleges use the SAT score?

The SAT score is considered as an important indicator of your ability to succeed in college. Various colleges use your scores to help them make placement decisions in one or both ways:

Like the SAT I, the SAT IIprovides schools with a standard measure of academic performance, which they use to compare you to applicants from different high schools and educational backgrounds. This information helps them to decide whether you’re ready to handle their curriculum.

SAT II scores may also be used to decide what course of study is appropriate for you once you’ve been admitted. For example, alow score inthe Writing Test might mean that you have to take a remedial English course. At the same time, a high score on the Math Level IIC Test could indicate that you would be exempted from an introductory Math course.

3. What SAT II subject tests should I take?

You should opt for the subjectsthat you think you wouldscore wellin, thereby increasing your chances of gettingadmission. Usually, many colleges demand that you take particular tests, which are generallythe Writing test and/or one of the Math tests. Some schools wouldgive you some choice in the matter, especially if they want you to taketests of three subjects.

 

Sobefore you register for any tests, check with colleges about the tests that they require. It might not be a good idea to solely rely on high school guidance counselors or admissionhandbooks for this information. They might not alwaysgive you accurate details.
