    660 Math IIC; 680 US History: How Good?

    Sponsored Ad:
    so, as you can see from my topic, I got a 660 on the SAT II Math IIC and a 680 SAT II US History. How good/bad are these scores? What's the average of them? And what are my chances of getting into UC Davis and UC Berkeley with a 3.5 UC GPA, 3.9 UC WGPA, and a 3460 UC Test Score Total?

    It's funny, though. I expected to get something a lot lower than a 660 on the Math IIC since I left about 1/5 of the test blank. I guess I'll see what happened in two days when the score report comes out.

    3.44 GPA (3.61 UC GPA, 3.96 WGPA)

    Are you strong in Math? I recommend you study for Math IIC over, as the curve is extremely generous. I heard that you can get 9-10 wrong and still get a 800.

    Well, I usually do well on Math tests. I think what screwed me over the most was that I studied a lot of the stuff a long time ago and didn't really review for it. I'm taking it again later. Too bad there aren't any problems with derivatives... limits... other stuff...

    i only got a 670 on Math IIC Should I retake it? I want to take other subjects too because I know that UCs require at least 2 subjects, but the other good colleges such as Harvard, Stanford, etc.. require 3. And, I'm guessing I have to take the US History test again b/c my score isn't that satisfying...
    shutupjessmeh-i heard that you're planning to take a bunch of SAT IIs tests. Which ones are you planning to take?? just curious

    mushroomt0p, do you know what you want to major in, or at least know if it will be humanities or math/science related?

    If it's the latter, I suggest you study harder for the Math IIC exam, as the College Board explicitly states what will be on the exam, so there is definitely room for improvement as you will know whats on the exam. (I'm not trying to say a 670 is bad)

    To be competitive at the top UC schools, I recommend 3 SATII's to fully distinguish you from the rest of the applicants.

    hey, I only scored a 660... and my June SAT IIs weren't that hot either... probably because I was gone and couldn't study for the week before...

    haha... I think in November I'm going to take the Spanish with Listening, Math IIC, and English Lit... and see how I do there... and then just give up because all the other ones require study...

    800 for each (j/k)
    I think 700 would be acceptable,that depends on what college(s) you are interested in
    Whom will God bless?

    thanks HiLine~~^^
    I got 800 on math 2, 720 on Physics (i'm gonna take it again in Nov), and 770 on Chem, With the GPA 3.8 (My grades from Korea is killing my GPA~~ T.T), is there any chance that I can get into UC berkeley or UCLA?
    how about UVA? Do i have to get more than 2000 on SAT1 to get into good schools like UCLA, UCBerkeley and UVA?
