There are now many sources that allow you to prepare for you SAT, ACT and SAT Subject Tests. For SAT-related tests, look at Schmoop, which is part of the College Board. The CollegeBoard has also has free diagnostic tests for each subject. At this point, Khan Academy offers free SAT prep, but not for the SAT Subject tests.

Would it help my application if I gave the SAT Subject Test in French or took some other Language Proficiency Certification Exam like the ones offered at Alliance Francaise? If yes, which one would be more beneficial: the Subject Test or the Certification exam?

To show your proficiency in a foreign language, the gold standard is the SAT Subject Test. Bear in mind that the international language exams are not given in each language on each testing date, so plan carefully so that you will be able to take the test in time to submit for your application test deadline. To see which SAT Subject Tests are given at a certain time, see https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/international.

Should I prioritize APs or SAT Subject tests?

The AP's and SAT subject tests correlate with each other. Generally, students have compiled strategy and content from AP courses in school to tackle the SAT Subject Tests. Therefore, I would prioritize both exams. Some colleges offer college credit for excellent subject test scores and AP scores. High exam scores may also serve as pre-requistes to advanced college courses, exempting the student from taking introductory level courses.

Do most colleges accept November SAT subject tests for Early Decision/Early Action?

Most colleges will accept November SAT subject scores for Early Decision/ Early Action. When you register for the November test, add the name of the ED/EA college to the registration so that they receive the scores electronically from the College Board. My recommendation is for you to also email the scores to the ED/EA colleges as soon as you receive them to insure that they have these results when they are reviewing your application.Some colleges will state categorically that they will not take standardized test scores after the application deadline. It is always prudent to know the deadline posted by your....View More

While the scores for the October SAT Subject Tests (and even the November tests at some colleges) can still be used for your early applications, I recommend that you take the June Subject Test or earlier. This will provide you with an indication of how competitive you will be when selecting your early schools. If you are unsuccessful achieving the scores you hoped for, then you can take the test again in October. You will receive your score shortly before the November 1st Early Decision or Early Action deadline for many colleges. Some schools will still consider scores from the November test if you elect to have the....View More

I gave SAT for the first time in March,2018 and scored 1190( 570 English and 620 Maths) and then gave SAT for the second time in May,2018 and ended up scoring 1390( 700 English and 690 Maths). Should I retake the SAT for third time? I had initially planned to give my SAT Subject Tests in October and November( US History and Maths Level 2 respectively).I plan to appear for either IELTS or TOEFL. Also, instead of giving the SAT for the third time, should I try my hand at ACT as well.

You may be slightly too focused on the standardized tests. While I'm sure you're capable of doing even better, a 1390 is perfectly respectable on the SAT, and a slightly higher score is unlikely to make a significant difference in your outcomes; colleges and universities in the US tend to have a holistic approach to admissions, so good test scores (and grades) in the absence of strong essays, deep and well-substantiated outside activities/passions, etc will not necessarily assure you acceptances. If you think your score is going to jump another 200 points on a retake, then by all means, take....View More

How do the SAT subject tests (PCM2) compare to what you would be taught in a CBSE school till grade 11?

If your understanding of your basic concepts is strong and you have the intelligence to apply those concepts confidently,  I think you will be fine. CBSE sciences focus more on knowledge and less on application. That is the basic difference.

You'll likely be treated the same as all applicants regarding AP exams.  Some schools don't actually look at the exam results as they only consider those if you're offered admission and to grant you credit.  Others may consider those scores so it's worth asking the schools you're applying to about how they review test scores.  As for AP courses, they are considered rigorous, but your application will be considered like all others in terms of did you take advantage of the curriculum that was offered to you.  There have been a lot of questions answered already about AP exams on....View More

I've recently entered 12th grade and am done with my main SAT (1530) and Physics and Maths Level 2 subject tests (800 in both). Considering that I have a lot of time on hand, should I take the Chemistry SAT subject test or would a third subject test add no value to my profile?

Wow! Congratulations! Your scores are really impressive. No, adding a Chemistry test is not necessary. But, if you really want to prove your merit in every science, you might want to take the Chemistry test. A third test for someone as smart as you should not be a challenge. And no university is going to object to seeing your ability in all the sciences. I am assuming you are interested in the engineering field.  Most schools generally require only 2 SAT subject tests and the number of schools requiring the subject test is also decreasing. Check the entry requirements of....View More

This all depends on the school you are applying to- I suggest that you look at each schools's website (for the institution you are applying to ED or EA). Furthermore, you can send your November subject test scores to your EA/ED school in the event that they will consider these results.

There are now very few schools that still require you to take Subjects Tests if you sit for the ACT. The ones that still require them are: CalTech, Cooper Union (for Engineering), Harvard and Cornell (for Arts & Science and Engineering), Harvey Mudd and MIT. To make sure, you should check the requirements college by college. In many cases (such as Georgetown) SAT Subject Tests are still STRONGLY recommended and you may be hurting your application by not sitting for these tests. To find out current requirements, go to the individual college websites or else this quick reference, made in....View More
