Can IB score replace the SAT II?

torehan7torehan7 Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
Hi, I am in a bit of trouble.
The thing is that I have a pretty good IB score. Like my last report card added up to about a 33-35.
The thing is that I took the SAT II Math, Physics and Biology-E and got fairly low scores (660, 610, 640).
I was wondering if it would be better to report them or not to report them.
I am applying to
Cornell, UMich, University of Rochester and University of California Berkeley.

    Those IB scores are your predicted scores, unless you took IB exams already. Your final IB exams won't be given until after you are accepted and decisions have been made, in May-- correct? That means that the only solid scores that the schools will have to go by are the SAT family of scores, which they will get when you submit the SAT I scores, anyway. So, no, you can't really replace the SAT II with the IB. The thing that schools see is that you are TAKING the IB scores. They won't know the actual test scores.
