Has anyone else ever had to take a Subject A Examination? Apparently you have to take it if you don't score over a 680 in the writing part of the SAT II or if you haven't taken the AP Language or Lit test.
I'm signed up for the the AP Language test, but because this test and the Subject A test dates are SO close together I have to take both (and pay for both) in order to achieve the same purpose.
Okay, now does this test seem unnecessary to anyone else?
I've already been accepted to college, they've seen my scores on the SAT, my AP tests, my GPA and the classes I'm taking.
Is there a legitimate reason for this test, or it just another loop to jump through to get into college?

I have never heard of it. Is it put out by the College Boards?
Is your college requiring you to take it? If not I would skip it.

I've never heard of it either. Is your school international? I've heard of A level exams in England, but not "subject A exams". And who says you have to take this, your high school or the college which has accepted you?

yeah I think the difference between them are that with AP tests, with a qualifying score one can get extra credit for college plus fulfilling the Subject A requirement...but if one doesn't pass the Subject A exam they'll have to take an extra writing class. I don't think it affects your admission at all, its just a requirement that comes with the UCs. I think you can wait or if you can't take them in May, you then have the opportuinity to take them in September. And since you should get your AP results over the summer, maybe you won't have to take it after all.
