    For most of the colleges that I want to apply to (in the US,) they require that I take a Math SATII and a Science SATII. I can't figure out what to do for my Science SATII, since I took SL Physics last year, and due to lack of teaching in the class I was only able to scrape out a 4. I am also in my 2nd year of HL Biology, but am absolutely terrible at it. I earn As or Bs, but usually without a clue as to what I am doing. I was wondering if anyone know how the HL Bio curriculum caters to the SATII Bio, or if it would be smarter for me to review some physics and take the SATII Physics.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, I'm a US high school student, so I'm not exactly sure how your coursework corresponds to the SAT II... but my reccomendation for you is to look at prep books for both of those SAT IIs. The prep books review the material on the exams, so you'll get a feel for which exam will be easier for you. They also have practice exams. Most people taking the exams in the US prep for them or at least use a book to refresh their memory of the material... some people have never even taken a relevant class and learn everything from the prep books. I HIGHLY reccomend you get your hands on a prep book so you know what to expect. This may be difficult in the UK, but you can always order from amazon and pay for international shipping... I know a pain, but probably worth it. Any of the prep books will suit your purposes; I've used Princeton Review, and they seem to be pretty solid.
