Number of SAT IIs

ThaManThaMan Registered User Posts: 330 Member
I've heard that many top schools require 3 SAT Subject Tests. The only tests I would be able to take though is MATH II and US History. I was going to take AP Bio this year but it wouldn't fit into my schedule...>_> So what do I do? Self study Bio? I'm taking Bio senior year but this is obviously going to be too late, right?

    Aside from Harvard and Georgetown, most schools only strongly suggest you take 2 subject tests.

    Actually I think only one college requires it atm (that I know of) and that is Georgetown, but even Georgetown stopped it i think. So, you really only need 2. But more doesn't hurt ;)

    Harvard doesn't anymore. They changed their policy

    well basically the deal is that most top schools require two, so definately make sure to do really well on two

    however, having more than 2 top scores (when I heard this the person said 780+ but w/e) can be advantageuos, so if youre able to take more than two go for it, but don't stress out about trying to get 5 800s.

    Take 2 SAT IIs, and spend the time you might've used to prepare for another SAT II on AP tests.
