    It depends on the school, you have to go to the websites and see what they say. I would not recommend retaking Subject tests, once you're in college, they're moot as you will be taking actual college level courses.

    Thanks! But you mean they do not accept SAT II?

    I'm not saying they don't accept Subject tests. What I'm saying is that since you are already in college and taking college courses, there is no reason to take Subject tests as they are lower level than your college courses. Take a look at college websites for transfers, some schools require the main SAT, but none require or care about Subject tests.

    do you think it might be better to take it while i'm still in high school since i'm planning on transferring, (since i can't apply anywhere anymore anyway)?
    I'm thinking of going to a school in japan so i figure my english skills aren't going to get any better.
    Is there a time limit of how long ago you took your SAT's when submitting the scores to a college you are applying to transfer to?

    I would study over the summer and take it next fall (if that will work out). There's no time limit or anything. Just take it whenever the most convenient time for you is.
