Do colleges consider the SAT II more important than the SAT, or vice-versa?
|By George Meany on Monday, November 12, 2001 - 08:14 pm: Edit|
The SAT I seems to have the edge in overall importance. Some colleges will accept the ACT instead of three SAT IIs.

How many colleges accept applications without requiring an SAT or ACT score?

You can visit a site called 'Fair Test' where they have a list of colleges that don't require the SAT or ACT. Some colleges, while not requiring either of those two, may require three SAT II subject tests, however. Here's the URL: http://www.fairtest.org/optinit.htm
Increasing numbers of schools, by the way, are attaching at least equal if not more importance to the SAT II test results as they do to the SAT I or ACT.

So, if you're already in college, is it too late to take the SATII? For instance, if you have a certain score on the writing portion, it satisfies a course requirement...or is it too late?

Question -- do colleges prefer a "balance" in the SAT IIs you take? For example, for a student not planning to pursue math or science, is it a good idea to take a math or sci SAT II anyway, rather than (say) Writing, History, and a foreign language? Or do they really mean "any three" when they say that?

Take them at their word, Rhonda. However, if the prospective applicant has the ability to score highly in a grouping that can reinforce his or her expressed program of interest, then that might add a gram or two for the good on the scales of decision. As you probably already know, the infamous Academic Index (AI) uses the IIs as a calculating element.

For student going into the eleventh, will a SATII math prepartation book be sufficient to prepare for the math portion on SAT. Purchased this in error.

In terms of the material covered in the SAT II book, D Fisher, the book you bought will be sufficient to prepare you for the SAT I math section. However, the SAT II book may not present tricks and shortcuts that one can take on the SAT I because those tricks are not on the SAT II.
