    Just have hope! Remember, 30,000 people are going against you in the admissions process so if you don't get in, you just have to suck it up.

    I know how you feel though. I'd be upset if I didn't get into Harvard, Yale, Stanford or Princeton.
    Thanks for scaring me further. xD But you know I am prepared I piled up on ECs doing good in school, hobbies etc.. I mean not to brag but I do make a strong application but you know what they say if you're good at something there is an Asian somewhere better than you. (I have nothing against them)

    For me I think Level 1 is harder than level 2 as its all the basic thing like fractions, which i can't do...

    Source: IC 730, IIC 800
    Ah ok thanks, but I think I'm probably going to be better at maths than other tests because I've done A level maths plus I enjoy maths a lot

    Haha. I didn't mean to scare you but you have to be realistic I guess. Yeah, well, I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I think for me maths is a subject I enjoy a lot and one that I'm relatively comfortable with; but, I think everyone has that one subject which they find easier than others! Even if you do well at maths at A level it doesn't guarantee you'll be able to sit the subject tests but I think if you are doing well you should maybe keep trying with maths unless there is another subject that your good at...

    Math II is actually more difficult than math I and evidently much more respected than math I. If you're applying to the ivies, don't even bother with math I (it's kind of seen as a joke).
    Math I only covers algebra. Math II takes it a step further to precalculus. The math II curve is actually pretty generous.
