The SAT subject tests measure students’ mastery of subjects on a high school level. SAT Subject Test scores are used by colleges as part of the admissions process to predict students’ capacity for college-level course work in a specific subject as well as potential for academic success.
IvyPrep’s uniquely designed courses build on the skills and strategies necessary to score in the 95% range. All of our sessions are taught by subject experts who have scored above the 99th percentile on the SAT and are experts in teaching test-taking strategies.

+ Are SAT Subject Tests necessary if I already took the SAT?
The SAT and the SAT Subject Tests are separate tests and provide college admissions officers different information about an applicant. While high SAT scores can demonstrate general readiness for college, competitive Subject Test scores can help you stand out by showing colleges that you are passionate about a specific field and are ready for advanced course work. Depending on the school and your score, you may even receive course credit towards your degree.
+ What is the difference between an SAT Subject Test and an AP test?
SAT Subject Tests assess knowledge on the high school level while Advanced Placement (AP) tests for skills and knowledge on the college level. The topics covered on an SAT Subject Test will therefore vary from the AP Exam for the same subject. Generally speaking, Subject Tests focus more on a broad knowledge and applying basic concepts while AP Exams focus more in-depth on a narrower range of topics and emphasize application of fewer but more rigorous set of skills.
