About the SAT 2 Math Subject Tests

Mathematics Level 1

The Math Level 1 test requires students to complete 50 multiple choice questions within an hour. The College Board recommends that students should have already taken at least three years’ worth of high school math, two years of algebra and one year of geometry, before taking this test. Since this test covers less material than Math Level 2, make sure you know most of the basic concepts you have learned throughout high school because you will most likely see questions that focus on applying your knowledge of basic concepts to unique problems.

Mathematics Level 2

The Math Level 2 test also requires students to complete 50 multiple choice questions within an hour. The recommended prior coursework is the same as Math Level 1 except with the additional knowledge of trigonometry and Pre-Calculus. Since this test covers more material than Math Level 1, there will likely be more of a focus on applying trigonometry and Pre-Calculus (and sometimes even calculus), although there will be questions that require you to solve abstract problems utilizing basic concepts.

Overview of Both Tests

Like all other SAT Subject Tests, both tests are scored on a scale from 200 to 800. Remember, there are GUESSING PENALTIES (1 pt for correct, -1/4 for incorrect, 0 for blank), so if you absolutely have no clue what the answer is, guessing probably is not the best choice. Since calculators are allowed on both exams, it is recommended that you bring a multifunction or graphing calculator, although all the questions are solvable without the use of a calculator (it’ll just take a little longer to answer questions).

The SAT is more of an aptitude test, testing reasoning and verbal abilities.
