"Schools That Require Subject Tests: A Comprehensive Guide"
대학마다 다르게 요구하는 SAT subject test 점수들을 어떻게 해석할것인가에 대한 답변입니다.
지원 대학마다 요구하는 사항 잘 검토하고 시험 준비와 시기에 대해 미리 검토하고 계획하시기 바랍니다.
Required - It speaks for itself. You must submit your SAT subject test scores and follow the school’s guidelines if there are any requirements on which scores and subjects to submit.
Recommended strongly - Georgetown and Duke, for example, “strongly” recommend that you submit your SAT subject test scores. It’s similar to required, which means that you would probably have a hard time getting in without submitting your subject test scores. Definitely do so.
Recommended - In this case, schools want to see subject tests. Unless you absolutely cannot due to financial constraints or other unavoidable circumstances, it’s best to do so.
Considered - At schools which consider SAT subject tests, not submitting the scores won’t make or break an application. If you choose to submit, they are simply looked at as another component of your application.
Alternative - The subject test requirement can be satisfied by other tests such as the AP, IB etc. depending on the school’s policy.
Test blind - Don’t send your subject test scores to test blind colleges. They won’t be looked at or considered at all.
