Who Takes Them and Why?

Prospective graduate school applicants take the Subject Tests. GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, letters of recommendation and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in the evaluation of grades and recommendations. Some Subject Tests yield subscores that can indicate the strengths and weaknesses in an individual student’s preparation and may also be useful for guidance and placement purposes.

It’s best to contact the admissions office or department you’re interested in and see exactly what they’re looking for.
