These are hour-long, content-based multiple-choice tests measuring knowledge of particular subjects and the ability to apply that knowledge. The advantage of taking these tests is that you can normally choose the subjects/tests that best showcase your achievements and interests. Some colleges also use the Subject Tests to place students into the appropriate courses. There are 20 SAT Subject Tests in five general subject areas: English, History, Languages, Mathematics and Science. Each test is scored on a scale of 200-800.
