Do subject tests matter?

I took the USH and Lit subject tests and I wasn't happy with my score, but they satisfied the requirement for course credit for the schools I'm applying to, so I don't really feel like retaking them. Will not retaking them hurt my chances in any way? I got a 600 on the USH and 560 on the Lit. Yikes.

    If the colleges you are applying to require subject tests--as in the subject tests play a part in admissions--then yes they do matter. If you already got the credit for the classes with your scores, there really is no point in retaking them.

    What colleges are you applying to? If you don't want to send them for the purposes of admission, you could withold them (using score choice) and then send the subject scores after you have decided on a college and are using them for credit. Those scores are slightly low, so if if you don't have to submit them and your school doesn't require them, I think that would be your best strategy
