Hi, I'm a french student who'd like to go to college in the U.S.
I have been taking mandarin chinese for 4 years as a second language, and would like to take SAT II: Chinese.
Unfortunately this test seems to be designed (and taken by !!) for native speakers, so the questions are EXTREMELY hard (i'm supposed to know words like sandwich or eyeglasses or dentist) and the average is extremely high since most people are native speakers ( around 750 i think).
Do you think it's better to take a shot even if I get 600, just to show that I'm able to compete in a native speaker range, or is that a bad idea (i could probably get 700 or 750 in some other subject)??

A 600 on the Chinese SAT II is in the first percentile. Beware.

If I am you, I would take something else. Because the percentile for 600 is EXTREMELY low.

Actually i took SAT II Chinese in 5th grade and got 620, the percentile was 8% not 1% :)
