SAT II subject tests:
Total fees vary by number and type of test(s).
Offered on most of the same dates as the SAT I Reasoning Test. Check
the College Board Web site to confirm availability.

Who should take SAT II Subject Tests? Students applying to highly competitive colleges and universities should check with the individual institutions for specific information regarding testing requirements for admission.

What are SAT II Subject Tests? Students take the SAT Subject Tests to demonstrate to college and universities their mastery of specific subjects such as English, history, mathematics, science and foreign languages. The content of each test is not based on any one approach or curriculum but rather evolves to reflect current trends in high school course work.

The SAT Program offers 20 Subject Tests that fall into general subject areas.

  1. English (Literature)
  2. History & Social Studies (US History, World History)
  3. Mathematics (Mathematics Level I, Mathematics Level 2)
  4. Science (Biology E/M, Chemistry, Physics)
  5. Languages (Chinese, French, German, Modern Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Spanish)

Students can take up to three SAT Subject Tests on a single test date. Students cannot take the SAT Subject Tests and the SAT Reasoning Test during the same test administration.

Commonly asked questions regarding ACT and SAT

How does my ACT score compare to my SAT score?

How can I prepare for the tests?

Both the ACT Corporation (ACT) and College Board (SAT, PSAT, AP) offer free and for-cost resources. Please refer to their Web sites for details:


We are offering the PSAT to Juniors only this year. The national test date is October 19, 2016. The PSAT/NMSQT is a test that can qualify you for scholarships and other honors, if you are a junior. It can also help you start thinking about and planning for college, see which academic skills you need to work on, and get ready for the SAT. For more information about the PSAT, check out their website. Payment for this test can be made during the schedule pick-up period and until August 25th. Cost: $15.00.


Pre-ACT provides students with a structured testing environment similar to what they will experience when taking the ACT, ACT test-quality questions, and predictive scores on the familiar 1–36 scale. This helps students get comfortable with the test and understand how they’re doing in core subjects. It also helps parents and educators identify areas where additional support might be necessary. It will be offered to Sophomores at GLHS in on February 22, 2017 and you must register in the guidance office no later than November 28th, 2016. Cost: $12.00.


Students graduating with the classes of 2016 & 2017 must pass all five parts of the Ohio Graduation Test in order to receive high school diplomas. (See Alternative Pathway for Eligibility for a Diploma.) The OGT are aligned to Ohio's academic content standards, which were adopted by the State Board of Education in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. These standards have been carefully designed to ensure that students are armed with the knowledge they need to be successful in higher education pursuits as well as the jobs and careers of the future. For information and resources, please visit the Ohio Department of Education's Web site.
