    I was wondering if taking maths level 1 and english as subject tests would be fine or does it look better to do maths level 2?

    It always looks better to take Level 2. But, it might involve a huge amount of self teaching depending on your level of maths.

    Hey guys which other SATS are you doing? I'm planning on doing the Maths 2, physics and the General SAT. I'm so excited I want to apply to MIT if I make it I'll cry, and I'll give free money to anyone I see and really wants it, I'll go crazy.

    P.S I'm planning to do it this November or October so I can do the regular action application for MIT.

    When are you sitting the ACT and have you decided where you will be taking them? Also where are you hoping to apply?

    I'm probably going to sit the ACT but I'm not sure yet over the SAT I. I'm probably going to sit it in October, I'm making my paper decisions soon and then I'm going to begin studying in August until October.

    Hopefully (in this order of preference):

    1. Yale College
    2. Harvard College
    3. Princeton
    4. Penn
    5. Stanford
    6. Amherst

    then I'm applying to:

    1. University of Toronto
    2. McGill

    and MAYBE University of British Columbia in Canada. I was going to apply to Columbia and New York University but my parents don't really want me to go to New York to study.

    What about you?

    I'm thinking of applying to the exact same uni's as you a part from Toronto and McGill! I'm actually dreading the application process because it is so long and daunting, but I would love to apply to the US. I prefer their education system a lot more than the UK. Out of interest, are you also applying to the UK? Also have you completed your A levels or are you applying in your gap year?

    Woo, go us aha. Could you PM me?

    I love the flexibility of the US curriculum and I'm quite looking forward to the process. Also, yes I am applying to universities here because even though I may be totally qualified and whatever, 30,000 people apply to these colleges every year (apart from Amherst) and its just not a guaranteed thing. I'm applying to Cambridge, Edinburgh, UCL and then deciding on the other two later.

    I am going into my first year of AS Levels in September. I have to apply to these universities next August/September so yeah, I have to do the tests this year and next year.

    You are absolutely right in not going for Cambridge and going for Oxford instead because Cambridge is more sciency. And I just finished the first year of AS waiting for my results. Scared as hell and so I'm applying this year. What about you?

    Standford is the second best in engineering but I'm scared lol XD coz if I don't get into MIT or standford i'll be broken coz they my dream uni

    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.

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