GRE Math Sub for Physics PhD program

  1. Jun 30, 2013 #1
    I am a rising junior in a US college and I plan to apply to a top physics PhD program. I am both a physics and a math major, and I am more interested in theoretic physics rather than experimental. So should I also take the GRE Math Subject Test?

    You should take the physics test.

    I know. But will it do any good if I take both?

    This falls into the category of "reading the minds of the admissions committee". Who knows what they will think?

    I can tell you that I personally would not give this much weight.
