For the French, German, and Spanish with Listening tests, the reading subscore counts twice as much as the listening subscore. For the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean tests, subscores are weighted equally. For the Subject Test in Writing (January 2005 and earlier) the multiple-choice subscore counts twice as much as the essay subscore."
