Is Honors Physics enough for SAT Physics?

<p>My school has Honors Physics for juniors and AP Physics B and C for seniors. But I want to take the SAT Physics exam by the end of my junior year. Would honors Physics be enough for the SAT Physics exam?</p>

<p>AP exams are meant to be taken after two years of classes in a subject. SAT subject tests, however, are meant to be taken after one year. This means they could be less in depth then an AP exam. However, if you want to do well on the subject test, buy a review book and study it. One year could be enough, so I would say go for it - colleges don’t have to see your score if it isn’t good.
My school doesn’t offer any AP classes, but the honors ones are quite rigorous. I took honors biology, and with some self study for the AP exam, I got a 770 on the bio sat subject test. It’s not physics, but you can do well on the subject test without taking an AP.</p>

<p>It really depends on rigorous the subject is taught at your school. </p>

<p>For some schools, such as our local ones, A students in honor physics often take SAT Physics and AP Physics B and get 750+/5s. In our neighboring towns, typical A students in AP Physics B/C get 1s/2s in AP exams.</p>

<p>Thanks for your feedbacks. I will probably just ask my Physics teacher on what level he thinks we’ll be at by the end of the course.</p>
