    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi everyone
    Although US colleges just require 3 SAT IIs or fewer,would I have more chance of being admitted if I take more than that? I still have 4 dates to take the SATs,one I will spend taking the SAT I,one the SAT II,so the rest 2 dates are left!Should I take another 3 SAT IIs in that case?Thank you for reading.
    Whom will God bless?

    No it is unecessary to take more than 3 SATII's.

    No. Colleges don't care whether you take more or less tests. Just take the required number and do well on them. Colleges won't care whether you take more because they don't look at more tests than they need to.

    Colleges would rather see three good grades than four-five average grades. Don't worry - take a break you deserve it.

    They look at the highest scores. Take the UCs, for example. They only require two SAT IIs. If you take five, they'll take your TWO highest scores and use them. They won't look at the scores from the other tests.

    If so,I would take extra SAT IIs if I can not score 800 on the first three subjects.

    I think it's a good idea to take 3 tests, just in case screw up one of 3 tests~~^^

    Just take tests in subjects you feel confident in. Even if you get 5 800's, it wont' matter. I suggest taking one or two more than you have to, just in case you screw up, but to each his/her own. Just make sure you can do well in all of them.
