So I am scheduled to take Math II Sunday...

...but I suck at math and I haven't had time to prepare. I took a practice test today from Barron's and only got a 580. T_T I'm also taking Bio and World History (easy for me). Shall I simply take these two and ignore Math II, or will the Ivies I'm applying to think I'm stupid or something?
Haaaaallllpppp. :'(

    Still take math II, for barrons the tests are extremely difficult. a 580 will probably equate to a 680 minimum, if you're lucky 700+

    Is it possible to cancel Math II if I don't feel as if I did well or at least not send it? I know that Ivies (especially H, my number one) prefer subject test scores of 750+, 700 as the bare minimum. :\

    Bump.
    Any suggestions? Can I cancel Math II if I don't feel I did well?

    Canceling math II means canceling all of your other scores.

    Wow. That truly sucks, lol. I can always not take it, right?

    Well, you can cancel your score for Math I or Math II individually if and ONLY if your calculator malfunctions or runs out of batteries and you report it to the proctor as soon as it happens.

    You can't cancel an individual test without invalidating all of the scores that day, but I believe you can change the subject that you are taking. You should be able to swap out your Math II with either Math I or even a completely different subject like Literature for example. You don't have to take the test that you signed up for ... you can choose a different one on test day.

    I don't believe you have to take it. Some girl in my room had the same question/problem today.

    @rob
    Thanks for the info! I may not take it tomorrow, lol.

    @purmo
    Yeah, but I think the test given tomorrow differs from the one administered today...
