Should I Submit My Subject Test Score?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am applying to cell and developmental biology phd programs in the fall, and I was wondering if I should submit my subject test scores for general biology. I ask because although my overall percentile is decent, my molecular biology subscore is awful



Overall: 870  -- 95%

Molecular: 076 --76%
Organismal: 094 --99%

Ecology: 084 --92%

Let me know what you guys think. Thank you!

Really? I wouldn't use the word "awful" to describe that subscore (you did very well overall  :) ).


In all seriousness I would send the score in - the rule of thumb I was told was a 75-80+ percentile score is good enough to send in. If the rest of your profile is strong, you should have no issues gaining a few admission offers.
