    haha iamthebist, those are amazing scores for your first go. When I did SAT2 math II I found it hard !! (720-->780).

    Got 770 in Math 1 and 770 in Math 2 .My first attempt.One more year to go before I apply in 2013 .So no complaints.
    Should I retake this test next year or is 770 adequate ?

    Which test are you talking about? Math I? No. Math II? Definitely yes. It's easy to get a 800 on Math IIC, especially considering the generous curve and our CBSE/ICSE background.

    And if you are thinking of applying to any technical college you would be better off taking a subject test in the sciences to complete the requirements. However, if you are more of a liberal arts type of person, you could substitute this subject test with a humanities subject test. But remember, most universities will only consider one of the Math scores, not both.

    Not that i can do anything about it now, but would a Math II have helped my case more? I took Chem and Lit (750,700). Are they both taken as 'soft subjects', (like in India)?

    I think math 2 and physics should be considered 'soft' due to the curve. lit. sure isn't soft.

    Hmm...But do the admissions people think so? :O Thanks Karan, i feel better :)

    I find it amazing how everyone on this website gets 800 on SAT math 2 !!! I mean it is soo much harder than the reasoning test.

    noragon are you an indian? if not then you should perhaps get the fact from now onwards that indians can solve tougher math problems than they can solve the easier one. and im not joking at all.
