The Italian SAT Subject Test assesses your comprehension of written Italian. Unlike some other SAT language tests, this exam does not offer a listening section. You are gauged solely on how well you understand what you have read.
The Italian test contains 80 to 85 multiple-choice questions. As with all other SAT subject tests, you are given one hour for completion.
The Italian SAT subject test measures your grasp of vocabulary in both structure and context. You will not be asked to write in Italian, only to read and understand it.
Please note that this test is typically offered once a year, so you are encouraged to prepare early and carefully, as opportunities to retake it are limited.
It is recommended that you have at least two years of rigorous Italian study before registering.
The Italian SAT Subject Test receives a score between 200 and 800. In 2011, the average (mean) score was 666.
Remember: the surest route to a high score is to implement a solid SAT preparation strategy.
