    Hi again!

    I don't know if this is the right forum to place this topic, but I don't know where else it would fit.

    I have noticed in looking around for PSAT and SAT study guides for my son that There is now a SAT I and II. The SAT I seems like the good ol' standard SAT, but the SAT II looks like they are subject SAT's. Can ayone explain how these came about, and if the SAT II is now also required for a student to get into a school/program/ect.....???

    From the College Board website

    Subject Tests, one-hour, mostly multiple-choice tests, measure how much students know about a particular academic subject and how well they can apply that knowledge.

    The 22 Subject Tests include: Writing (with an essay), Literature, U.S. History, World History, Math Level IC, Math Level IIC, Biology E/M, Chemistry, Physics, French Reading, French Reading with Listening, German Reading, German Reading with Listening, Spanish Reading, Spanish Reading with Listening, Modern Hebrew Reading, Italian Reading, Latin Reading with Listening, Japanese Reading with Listening, Korean Reading with Listening, Chinese Reading with Listening, and the English Language Proficiency Test.

    Many colleges require or recommend one or more of the Subject Tests for admission or placement. Used in combination with other background information (your high school record, scores from other tests like the SAT I, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a dependable measure of your academic achievement and are a good predictor of future performance.
