Are 3 subject tests required for JHU? If a student only has 2 how much will this hurt?

    Johns Hopkins does not require applicants to take SAT II subject exams. We do recommend that all applicants take SAT II subject exams of their choosing, but we do not provide recommendations on which exams. It is recommended that students take three SAT II subject exams. This policy holds for applicants submitting SAT Reasoning scores as well as ACT scores. For a full description on our standardized exam policy, please review this website: Hopkins Undergraduate Admissions :: Apply :: Standardized Test Requirements.

    There is no official advantage nor disadvantage to submitting SAT II scores. It is the choice of each individual student whether they want to submit SAT II subject exam scores and how many exams they want to submit. However, we want applicants to consider our recommendations as strong recommendations, therefore submitting SAT II scores will make a difference in the application review. There is no way to predict whether submitting scores or how many scores submitted will impact the review of the application positively or negatively, as they are part of the comprehensive review of an applicant's file.
