Are Subject Tests something I need to take?
Subject tests continue to be one of the most confusing aspects of the college application process: Do you need to take them? Is is good to take if not required? Which ones should you take?
There is no easy answer, because some schools still “recommend” exams for applicants, whereas others only require or recommend for specific majors. Other schools describe the subject tests as “value added” when included in an application. And finally others schools do not consider them at all. To cut through all the confusion, CCPrep provides the following recommendation to its students:
1. Strongly recommended for Engineering applications to some colleges
2. Value Added at UC campuses and some other elite colleges
Please be aware, the colleges are still in the process of updating their policies regarding Subject Tests. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise you accordingly.
