The "List of Approved Essay Topics" is a complete list of the essay topics approved for use on the Regents' Test. Until additional topics are approved, all Essay Test forms will be constructed from topics that appear on this list.

This list of topics should be made available to students. At some institutions, the list is sold at cost in the bookstore; at other institutions, copies are made available for student use in the library. All students planning to take the test should be informed of the availability of the list and the means for obtaining it. Click here to view the list of topics.
