AP and Subject Tests

AP and Subject Tests

The SAT subject tests are a collection of 20 multiple-choice tests given on individual subjects, taken to improve a student’s credentials for admission to college. Students typically choose which tests to take depending upon college entrance requirements for the schools to which they are planning to apply. Most selective colleges recommend that applicants submit scores for two subject tests. A handful of the most competitive schools, such as Georgetown University, still require three subject tests.

The AP (Advanced Placement) tests are a collection of 31 multiple-choice and free-response tests given on individual subjects. Colleges grant course credit and/or advanced placement to students who obtain high scores on the examinations. Some colleges use AP test scores to exempt students from introductory coursework. Each college’s policy is different, but most require a minimum score of 3 or 4 (on the 1–5 scale) to receive college credit.
