Retaking Subject Tests

Hey guys,

I am taking the Chemistry subject test in October and would like to know whether I should take the Biology E exam as well. I have taken it twice before, getting a 740 and 750. Is a 750 good enough for the top colleges? I plan on majoring in a science related field.

Thanks in advance!

    Boosting your Biology E score to 760-800 would have virtually zero impact on your admission chances. Taking the test for a third time is not a good idea. Keep in mind that non-Score Choice colleges such as Yale and Stanford will expect to see all of your scores. Concentrate on Chemistry.
