Only take 3. If your IC score is better than your IIC score, they'll probably look at that. Then take Chem again. I know they will only use the top 3 in their equations that help decide if the student is a potential student of their school.

You should take the other SAT II in an area you plan to go in depth at in college. Since it seems you are looking at science, they might look at that IIC score a little more...

say a college requires that you take the writing exam and you take more than 3 SAT II's and you have 3 that have higher scores than the writing one... will they just look at the top three or specifically at the writing and then whatever other two are highest?
*sorry if that's confusing*

I would assume they would look at writing plus your highest 2 other scores. I would also think this would be the same for colleges that require Math, Writing, and 1 of your choice. They would take writing, highest math score, and highest of everything else.
