A student who has done well in calculus should know the precalculus stuff well
I understand that “recommended” can mean required for certain students. What about “not required”?
I believe that it is better to prep for an above average SAT General score and one Subject test than study for three tests receiving an average score.
What if the student has taken college calculus classes? Is it still necessary to show colleges a score in math 2 when the student would have forgotten most of that early math?
since doing calculus means practicing the precalculus stuff.
The takeaway imo is that kids should take the math level 2 subject test as soon as possible after studying precalc;
I know a number of kids who have taken math level 2 in elementary school, including my own
it's safe to assume that most AO's know that the percentile for an 800 in Chinese is low, even if they don't remember the exact percentile
From the University of Chicago website;
" We require either the SAT Reasoning test or the ACT. If you have done exceptionally well on a particular subject test and would like to show us, feel free to send us that score. However, SAT II’s are truly optional, and not sending us Subject Tests will not hurt your application."
If you were able to actually look at non-natives who just studied the language at a US high school, I would wager that the percentage of 800 scores is among the lowest of all Subject Tests.
Knowledge from AP Physics 1 could have been enough to get a decent score due to overlapping areas and high curve of the test.
