Hi. My D22 will apply for a STEM program in the UK next year and, as a result, is currently studying A Levels in math, further math, physics and chemistry. She is also interested in applying to selective US universities and is worried that she might come across as too STEM-focused.
Accordingly, she is considering taking the SAT English Lit subject test to round out her academic profile. Currently, she is registered to take subject tests in Math II, Physics and Chemistry at the end of the academic year.
Questions: Would it be helpful for my D22 to round out her academic profile by taking the English Lit subject test? Or would her SAT ERBW score (800) be sufficient?
If rounding out her academic profile via the English Lit subject test is helpful, should she swap one of her current subject tests (Chemistry or Physics) for English Lit, or add English Lit and take it in a separate exam sitting (4 subject tests in total looks to me to be a bit excessive)? FYI - if she studies in the US, she will either focus solely on a STEM subject or double major (STEM and non-STEM).
Thanks in advance for your help.
