What are your options based on your academic and personal strengths? Note that the subject tests you want to take should also be in congruence to the requirements of your target colleges. Take the subject tests of your choice especially if you have just accomplished your high school coursework on them. So if you have recently completed your French subject in high school, you can consider taking the French SAT subject test wherein your chances of passing bode well.

· Be aware of your key strengths and interests. You need to know what your predilections are because it is essential to take the subject tests where you excel at. These would tend to point at the courses that you can take in college. Your capabilities will shine and be considered by the admission committee, which in turn will boost your college application.

· Take the subject tests that are required by your target colleges. What subject tests does your target college require? Do they recommend particular subject tests so that you can enroll in their pertinent programs? But note that even if they do not require a subject test score, submitting one will increase your likelihood of being accepted.

Why Get A High Score In Your SAT Subject Tests?

Why should you take time to study well for your SAT subject tests? It’s because if you do very well on it, your preferred college may grant you with a credit or exempt you in relevant freshman courses. Try to get in touch with these institutions and inquire about their policies in relation to this matter.

Go through the full list of SAT subject tests that you can take and work out if you have completed the coursework on your choices in high school. After deciding on which SAT subject tests to take, you can then focus your attention on your test prep.

SAT subject tests are actually based on your coursework in high school, so your test prep should be centered on the materials that were utilized in these classes. Use the reference text books that were utilized in your classes. You can opt to hire a mentor or tutor to assist you with your SAT subject tests prep or you can form a study group with your classmates. Conventional methods of preparing for the SAT subject tests can be augmented with online test prep where you can get hold of free and reliable practice tests.
