I need some more advice
I've already taken the SAT II Chemistry, and done well.

In may I will take the Writing, and in June, I will take the Math IIC. I expect to do well on the writing and the math.

Well, here's my question. Is it worth it to take the Physics SAT II, even though I'll have already taken 3 others. I don't think it's worth it. I will only have taken one year of an honors physics class. I don't want to do poorly. If I do well, will it add anything to my application?

I'm in sort of the same boat as you (except I've taken SAT II US history and done well, and I also have math out of the way). I looked at the physics practice test (in Real SAT IIs) and it was easier than I thought, so I got all excited and thought about taking it... then I realized there was no point. I'm sure having 4 high SAT IIs is better than 3 high SAT IIs, but the benefit (as far as I know) is so small it's not worth the time/money/effort.

Is there any problem with taking the SAT IIs more than one time? I signed up for the May SAT IIs in: Writing, Biology, and US History. These are the three AP classes that I'm taking right now.

I'm asking because I wanted to also take the Math II C for some colleges that require it. It won't be a problem to take more than 3 SAT II subject tests right?
