The SAT Subject Tests are less of a requirement–like the SAT or ACT–and more of an opportunity to showcase your academic skills in a particular subject area. Also known as the SAT IIs, these tests are largely optional, but may be required for admission into highly selective schools or competitive degree programs. They can also strengthen your college application overall, especially if you earn a high score.
