Mostly colleges require SAT-1 scores for admission.
  2. SAT II

Many universities might require to take the test along with SAT I . These competitive universities will need 2-3 subject tests. The subjects included in the test are Literature, US and World History, Mathematics Level 1 and 2, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
