If you’re not yet a junior in high school, you might feel as if the big standardized tests—the ones that will factor into your college admissions decisions—are still a long way off.
To a certain extent, this is true: you won’t need to take the ACT or SAT until the spring of your junior year. However, if you plan to apply to colleges that require SAT Subject Tests—and many elite colleges do—you should take these tests immediately after you finish the related classes in high school. And many of these classes are given during freshman and sophomore years.
If you want to take an SAT Subject Test this June 2 (i.e., the last test date before summer arrives and you forget a large percentage of what you’ve learned this year), you should register to do so by May 8.
