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?

We are offering the PSAT to all Sophomores and Juniors this year. The national test date is October 2019. 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.  

Testing Requirements for the Class of 2018 and Beyond

Students in the class of 2018 and beyond will no longer take the OGT. They will have a series of 7 end-of course exams as part one of their options for the graduation testing requirement. They have 2 additional pathways as well that will be highlighted in the handout below.

Students who have not accumulated 18 points or the appropriate sub-score point totals in each of the categories will re-test in December.  Students will receive a letter home in the mail informing them of the tests they are taking.

Class of 2018 and beyond testing requirements

Please see your school counselor if there are any questions about testing or graduation requirements. Please note that the graduation course requirements on this document are the state minimum requirements, not Gahanna Lincoln's requirements. Please see our specific requirements below:
