Are you a history buff as well as a high schooler looking to improve your transcript in the eyes of college application reviewers? You might want to look into taking the SAT Subject Test in World History.

Unlike the SAT, which is a generalized test that aims to measure your aptitude for success in college, the various SAT Subject Tests each home in on a particular course or topic, and test your knowledge of those topics in detail. In particular, the SAT Subject Test in World History tests your ability to think critically about historical data and sources, as well as recall details about major historical trends and events. The test consists of ninety-five multiple choice questions, which you have an hour to answer. Some of these questions may reference material (included on the test) like maps or other images, but not all questions will do this. There is no essay component to the SAT Subject Test in World History. The math works out such that you have approximately thirty-eight seconds to answer each question, so it is important to go into the exam with all of the pertinent information fresh in your mind; you don’t have time to sit there trying to remember when Australia was colonized or where the major battles of WWI took place. Because of this, you shouldn’t attempt to take the SAT Subject Test in World History before you are ready; many students take SAT Subject Tests during either their junior or senior year of high school, when they’ve had time to complete a good amount of high-school coursework in their chosen subject.

As for what sorts of World History the SAT Subject Test focuses on, it can be broken down by time or place. Organizing the exam’s content based on when the events tested happen results in the following ratios:

  • Prehistory and civilizations up to 500 CE (25%)
  • 500 to 1500 CE (20%)
  • 1500 to 1900 CE (25%)
  • After 1900 CE (20%)
  • Referencing multiple chronological categories (10%)

If one instead organizes the material tested on the SAT Subject Test in World History by the location where the events tested each occurred, it results in these ratios:

  • Global / Comparative (25%)
  • Europe (25%)
  • Africa (10%)
  • Southwest Asia (10%)
  • South and Southeast Asia (10%)
  • East Asia (10%)
  • The Americas (not counting the United States) (10%)

You may wonder why that last point excludes the United States; if you want to delve into the details of U.S. History, you should check out a different SAT Subject Test: the one for U.S. History.

If the SAT Subject Test in World History sounds like a challenge you’d like to face, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools website offers some awesome free resources you’ll probably be interested in using. Our SAT Subject Test in World History Practice Tests are a great way to review the large amount of information that you need at your disposal on test day; they can also help you to pinpoint the gaps or weak points in your understanding of world history, so you can work on learning what you don’t understand, instead of spending all of your studying time reviewing things you already know. Every SAT Subject Test in World History Practice Test contains around twelve multiple-choice questions formatted in the same way as those that you will encounter on the SAT Subject Test you take on test day. After you answer all of the questions in a Practice Test, you get to see how long you took to answer each question, which can highlight any that you struggled with in particular.
