Oct 2004 SAT II scores

<p>Confused and nervous about scores compared to percentiles. Are these "good" for Ivy admission? </p>

<p>Math IIc: 730, 69 %
Writing: 750, 90 %
Spanish: 790, 92 %.
(Average: 757)</p>


<p>I know what you mean. The percentiles make even good scores look bad. :(</p>

<p>Here are mine:</p>

<p>Math IIC - 670 - 48% (ahhh, I've never in my life scored below the 50th percentile!)</p>

<p>Writing - 790 - 96 %</p>

<p>Spanish - 750 - 79%</p>

<p>By the way Berry, I think your scores are great. They definetly will not bring down your app. The reason the percentiles are lower is that only students who go to very selective schools that require the SAT II's take them. A 757 average is awesome!</p>

<p>Math IIC 800 this time around is 90%</p>

<p>for berry and leonesa, how did you guys study for the spanish test. i just took ush and im happy with my score and i dunno if i should take spanish. i took ap language last year and got a 4 on the test. did you guys take ap or are you guys native speakers or anything that would give you that good of scores? or did you guys just study hardcore?...</p>

<p>ive heard that colleges dont really care about the percentiles, just the scores. also, since the score is curved and whatnot, doesn't that alone tell colleges where you stand compared to everyone else? my percentiles were surprising, but I'm not letting them discourage me:</p>

<p>Physics - 780 88%
Math IIC - 800 90%</p>

<p>Thanks for the encouragement.
Non-native speaker but good at languages.
Most helpful was taking practice tests-then checking out wrong answers.
Worked backwards from right answer to learn how to do problem correctly.
Helped on all three tests.
Good luck.</p>
