SAT Subject Tests
The subject tests measure students' knowledge and skills in a particular subject area and the ability to apply that knowledge.
We advise students to take subject tests in May or June following their junior year, particularly after completing an AP course.
Speak with the college advisors regarding the specific subject tests that you should consider taking.
The American College Test (ACT) consists of five sections in english, mathematics, reading comprehension, science reasoning and writing.
When you register for the ACT, it is imperative that you register for the ACT plus writing.

Recommendations and Guidelines from College Advising
Registration for the SAT and ACT (with writing) is the responsibility of the student.
Register early since the test centers are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
All juniors should take the SAT and ACT during second semester of the junior year. Students in Geometry should wait until at least March, but a student in Pre-Calculus can take either test as early as January.
After receiving your test scores assess your performance with your college advisor and register for your next test dates in May, June, or early fall. Summer is a prime time to prepare to retake the SAT or ACT. A majority of students will see an increase in scores from junior to senior year.
If a student is interested in applying to a military academy, he or she should take the test in January of junior year.
Students must request his or her scores be sent by the College Board and ACT directly to the colleges to which an application is to be submitted. Failure to do so will result in incomplete applications.
All scores will be sent to Wesleyan automatically when students enter Wesleyan's code (110261).
