The SAT Subject Test in Biology

The SAT Subject Test: Biology (formerly called the SAT II or College Board Achievement Test) is a one-hour multiple-choice test given by the College Board, the same organization that prepares the PSAT, SAT, and AP (Advanced Placement) exams.

This exam allows students to show mastery of biology. Since it is a national exam, colleges use it to compare applicants from different schools and different parts of the country. It levels the field for students who struggled for a B in a challenging class versus students who received an A in an easier class.

Should I take the Biology E or Biology M Test?

The SAT Subject Test in Biology comes in two forms: an Ecology emphasis and a Molecular emphasis. You will decide which test you want to take the morning of the exam. Both tests are very similar: the first 60 questions are the same, and will cover general questions on ecology and molecular biology. After you answer these questions, you must choose a final set of 20 questions that emphasis either Ecology or Molecular biology. You must choose without looking over the questions, and you must choose only one version.

My honors biology course emphasizes molecular biology, and many students feel comfortable with this test. However, you may choose either one.

The best way to find the right version for you is to take both forms on a practice test, and see where you consistently do the best.
