Should I take the biology subject test?

Hi! I’m a rising sophomore and was wondering if I should take the biology SAT subject test. I love biology, and plan to major in it in college. I took honors bio this past year and got an A+. The problem is, my school is tiny and didn’t offer AP bio, or any other AP science class. I will be taking honors chemistry this year. I was thinking about taking the molecular bio subject test at the end of chemistry (since chem will help with molecular bio). I was wondering if I can still do well without taking AP bio. Keep in mind I do biology related activities in my free time, and will be taking an environmental science class this summer through dual enrollment. Thanks!

Yes! Taking the subject test I think will definitely show your dedication to Bio. And dedication to your planned majors is something colleges really like to see.
