(I guess this might belong in the Cambridge threads, but I want more exposure and the specific college threads get no traffic)
So, I received the following scores. Can you tell me how they relate to Cambridge/UK Schools? I have a few reach colleges with some pretty specific guidelines and I'd love your input on what I should send/not send. I know that a lot of people say "send everything," but I am not too sure on this occasion. Applying for 2015, incoming senior in high school.
AP US History 4
SATII US History 690
AP Spanish 4
SATII Spanish 570...
plus 3 other AP scores (one 5, two 3s, self study for two of them), and two more SATII scores (world history 690 and math 2 700).
I am taking 6 more APs this year.
ACT 32 (so translated to a 2100-2200 SAT)
I don't understand why I scored so low on my subject tests. I was thoroughly engaged in class and studied quite a bit for these tests, and took them the weekend before my AP tests.
My ACT is stronger than my SAT but cambridge doesn't take the ACT to my knowledge, yet they accept the scores on their application...
Here is what I need help with:
Cambridge University (UK) (Sidney Sussex or Magdalene, not decided yet) entrance requirements:
- Request 5 ap tests with a 5 on each.. I do not meet this.
- They recommend 700+ on SAT subjects and reasoning. I just did not 'click' with the SAT, it felt so foreign. I was further from meeting this than the AP scores.
- Never mention an ACT on their site yet accept it on the UCAS application.
Thus, I feel like adding my SAT subjects and reasoning will just make my application far weaker. But, does anyone know if they will look at my ACT score? Will they just ask for a SAT later on, or will they throw my application out if they do not receive one?
Maybe I should contact one of their representatives?
