Test Dates Cramped Up...Don't know what to do

<p>Ok, the issue is fairly simple</p>

<p>I've taken the SAT two times already with a 1930 and 1950.</p>

<p>I have the option to take the last third one in three days. I am absolutely not prepared, and I know it.</p>

<p>If I take this SAT and get it over with, I will have much more freedom with test dates.
But If I don't take this SAT now, this is what my schedule will have to be:</p>

<p>ACT in September
SAT II Bio/Chem and Math2 in October (Btw, which science would be the better option?)
SAT I in November
[Or I can take sat I in October and vice versa, but that would be kind of hard because ACT and SAT II Subject Sciences would go nicely together in terms of studying material...]</p>

<p>Receive Score reports and send by before or at mid December</p>

<p>The downside is that, I will not be able to do Early Action...</p>

<p>So the question is, should I get it over with, or leave it till NOV/OCT and practice till then?</p>

<p>If I'm getting any of these wrong, please re-explain to me what they are... I am still learning the world of college entrance... </p>

<p>How common is it to see students raise their scores by a good 100~300 points? </p>

<p>Will someone suggest to me which SAT i should take first? Subject or just SAT 1?</p>

<p>Where are you planning on applying Early Action?
Yale's website has this to say about their Single Choice Early Action program and test dates:</p>

Single- Choice Early Action – no later than November. (Although we cannot guarantee that November scores will arrive before the Admissions Committee convenes, past experience suggests that they will).

<p>So for Yale, at least, October is definitely fine and probably Nov is too. Check the school you plan on applying early to.</p>

<p>If you aren't ready, I would not take it unless most of your schools let you use score choice. Then you could hide a bad test, or if you just get a 1950-1960 again.</p>

<p>Quite a few kids take the SAT subject tests in June if they match up with the AP's they just finished.</p>

<p>Take the science test you feel the most confident about.</p>
