    2 Subject Tests for many schools.

    And you do not need perfect SAT. These schools routinely reject candidates with 4/0/36/1600 stats in favor of some with lower stats. You do need, in addition to strong stats, demanding course rigor, strong ECs, solid essays, great LoRs

    SAT subject tests...AP exams help. That's pretty much it when it comes to tests, at least for undergrad.

    AP exams help
    Not necessary; it's all in context with HS offerings.

    You need to go each school's website to see which tests are required, recommended or optional. Many require/recommend 2 or more SAT2's. AP test scores are often optional, and should correlate to AP classes taken. If you are an international, a TOEFL or equivalent may be required.

    Others have covered the required. If you are good at math you should take the AMC https://www.maa.org/math-competitions and see if you can qualify for the AIME. If you like computer programming you could try this https://www.acsl.org/ There are national Latin exams if you take Latin. None of them are going to get you into top schools by themselves, but they are nice to list.
