About the Exam
The California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) Health Science assessment is offered to individuals interested in teaching this subject in the state. The assessment is broken into three subtests. Depending on the teaching credentials or authorizations you seek, you might be required to take one, two or all three subtests of the exam. Subtest II consists of 40 multiple-choice questions and two constructed-response questions. If taken alone, the subtest lasts one hour and 45 minutes, and if taken with the other subtests, you will be granted four hours and 45 minutes of testing time. Passing the CSET Health Science Subtest II requires a minimum score of 220. Test results are typically sent within seven weeks of testing. Appointments are available during specific four-week testing windows and can be scheduled online.
