Which SAT Subject Tests Shouls I Take??

ilanag3ilanag3 Registered User Posts: 87 Junior Member
I'm currently a junior, and I want to take some SAT subject tests in may or june, but I'm not sure which ones! By the end of the year I would have taken these classes that are relevant to the subject tests:

AP World History (but in 10th grade)
AP US History
AP Physics
AP Language and Composition
Regular PreCalculus and Trig
Spanish 3

So which ones should I take? I probably have around an A-/A average in all the classes. And if it helps, I want to study Industrial Design, and my top choices are RIT, SCAD, Lehigh, Pratt, JMU, and VT. I know I want to take US History, but I'm not sure about the rest. Do you think the spanish one will be too difficult with only 3 years? I want to take ones that I can get the best scores in without studying too much.

Please help, and thank you!

    Can't go wrong by taking one of the Math subject tests for any of those. For Pratt subject tests aren't really needed unless you are applying to the Architecture program: "Pratt recommends that applicants to the Bachelor of Architecture program submit the results of the SAT II Mathematics Level I or II Subject Test. If you applied early action and took the October SAT or ACT, the admissions office will consider your file when we receive the score."

    Check out the sample tests or sample questions and see which ones you can do well in. Then get study books and prepare for them.

    Math 2 has a generous curve but it is difficult; math 1 has a tough curve but content is more similar to the math on the SAT and ACT. If you do well in math you could take either. Otherwise US History and physics for sure. English if you have a good grasp on terminology.
