3 or 2 Subject Tests? Phys or Chem?

ShruikanShruikan Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
Hey all,


I plan to be taking my SAT Subject Tests in November. I was planning on taking Math II, Physics and Chem.

But the thing is, most colleges require 2. So if I get a bad score on 1, will it affect my app?

Also, is it advisable to take 3 STs in one day? Would the exhaustion affect my score, or is an adequate break provided in between tests?

Thanks!

    The exhaustion would only affect 1 score (the test you took last).

    I would take them in this order:
    Physics (requires the most focus)
    Chemistry (straight-foward)
    Math II (easy, and has a low ceiling)
