Although it is only required to submit two SAT Subject Tests from different subject areas for the University of California application, certain UC programs do provide recommendations on which two you should take. This applies in particular to students applying for more science-based majors or programs.

It is strongly recommended that students submit scores from the SAT Subject Test: Math Level 2 and from an SAT Science Test (either Chemistry, Biology E or Biology M, or Physics) that is “closely related to the applicant’s intended major” for the following UC colleges, programs, and majors:

At UC Berkeley, College of Engineering or College of Chemistry. At UCLA, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. At UC Riverside, the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering. At UC Santa Barbara, the Engineering major and the Computer Science major. At UC San Diego, the Jacobs School of Engineering and any biological or physical science majors.

And, at UC Irvine, for the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, it is “strongly recommended” to take at least the SAT Subject Test: Math Level 2 as one of the two SAT Subject Tests submitted.

    I just applied to 6 UC’s: Berkeley, LA, San Diego, Davis, Irvine, Santa Barbara, with mostly undeclared majors in biological/life sciences. I took the Math Level 2 in June 2006 and scored a 650. Since I wanted to raise my score, I took it again in December.. but I don’t think my score improved much. My Chinese SAT 2 score is 790, and my SAT score is 2080. Will my math score greatly hurt my chances of getting in? And is there any way to change what major I put on my application? Or is it pretty much set in stone…
