    Here in California, seniors (this year, anyway) are required to take the Writing and Math IC or IIC, plus a third test of their choice. The third test varies quite a bit, but many of our students choose Chinese, one of the sciences, or sometimes U.S. History. Actually, I've had a few students take more than three, just to see how they do and to show the adcomms that they are good in several diverse areas.

    What do you suggest for people in Class of '06? I'm taking SAT II US History and SAT II Math this Saturday, and I'm planning on taking SAT II Physics and SAT II Spanish. (UC's won't take the SAT II Writing anymore, huh?) Yes, they're incredibly diverse. Schools won't be pissed and dock points because you don't take tests that pretain to your major, will they? (and I'm still undecided... but I have time...)

    Hi Jess, sorry I didn't see this question before your test.

    First, the tests you're taking and are signed up for look like a pretty good variety.

    The SAT II Writing test doesn't even exist anymore, and the UCs will not accept past test scores, but not many people will have taken the SAT II Writing test anyway.

    The standard advice is to take more of the math and science SAT IIs if you're planning to apply to such programs as engineering, biology, chemistry, etc. I'm sure you know that some programs require you to take certain tests to apply. If you're going to apply undeclared, it won't matter as much; you may want to take the tests in which you'll get the highest scores. For you, if you can get a high score, taking the SAT II Spanish would probably help, but again, make sure you can get a high score. Sometimes people think two or three years of Spanish will enable them to get a high score, but the test is probably more difficult than that.
