SAT Subject Tests & AP Exams
More and more students and colleges are focusing their attention on SAT Subject Tests. Many colleges take these tests seriously, and use them to inform their admissions decisions. In fact, most selective colleges require 1-3 SAT Subject Tests as part of their application. Our tutors will help students prepare for the SAT subject tests that their colleges require.
Subject Tests measure your knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, and your ability to apply that knowledge.
Many colleges use the Subject Tests for admission, for course placement, and to advise students about course selection. These tests give you and colleges a very reliable measure of how prepared you are for college-level work in particular subjects. Used in combination with other background information (your high school record, SAT scores, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a dependable measure of your academic achievement and are a good predictor of future college performance in specific subject areas.
Subject Tests fall into five general subject areas: English, History, Math, Science, and Languages.
Student performance in AP classes and on AP exams can often inform college admissions decisions. Doing well in an AP course is a key component of having a competitive college application.
The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) test allows high school students to take college-level courses and exams and earn college credit or advanced placement. Many colleges and universities in the United States and other countries have an AP policy granting incoming students credit, advanced placement, or both, on the basis of their AP Exam grades. Many of these institutions grant up to a full year of college credit (sophomore standing) to students who earn a sufficient number of qualifying AP grades.
