SAT II tests measure students' knowledge in five tests areas (see below). These tests are offered, like the SAT, on Saturday mornings throughout the school year. [Students cannot take the SAT and SAT II tests on the same day!]
Students must register for the tests. Some college require students to take three tests (usually Writing, Math and one of the student's choice). Not all universities require SAT II, so students should check the universities requirements before registering for any SAT II tests.
These are one hour tests that colleges use in several ways:

For some tests, such as Biology, Chemistry or World History, students should register to take the tests at the end of the year they take the course.

Students who speak a language other than English should take the "listening" test.
ELPT is a test for students who have studied English as a second language.
