Chinese SAT II

What is SAT II Chinese with Listening test?

Subject Tests (formerly SAT II Subject Tests) are designed to measure your knowledge and skills in particular subject areas, as well as your ability to apply that knowledge. The “SAT II Chinese with Listening” test measures your ability to understand spoken (Mandarin) and written Chinese. The test contains 85 multiple-choice questions (a 20-minute listening section and a 40-minute reading section). It is designed for high-school students that have studied Chinese for 2-4 years.

Why should you take the test?

Students take the Subject Tests to demonstrate to colleges their mastery of Chinese language. The tests are independent of any particular textbook or method of instruction. Many colleges use the Subject Tests for admissions, for course placement, and to advise students about course selection. Used in combination with other background information (your high school record, scores from other tests like the SAT Reasoning Test, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a dependable measure of your academic achievement and are a good predictor of future performance.

When should you take the test?

  • You should have at least two years of strong preparation in the language, but more is better.
  • You should be in a Chinese class when you take the test to improve your performance.
  • For seniors studying Chinese: if Chinese is a strong subject for you, be sure it's one of the SAT II's you take in time for your colleges to see your score.
  • If you're only taking it for placement purposes, and not as part of your application for admission, wait until you're as far along in your course as possible.
  • If you want to take the “Chinese with Listening” test, remember that it's only given in November. Don't forget to bring a portable cassette player with earphones! Register on-line at CollegeBoard.
