well,,,,this is a tricky problem,,only u know the answer coz u have to prepare for exam,,if u have studied other three subjects well then u can go for bio physio too,,,otherwise its not a good idea to take bio physio without prep,,,coz i know even i am very weak in that subject,,if the score in other subjects is good why do u want to take those exams again,,
and if u are keen on getting very good score then i think u can postpone the exam ,study for all subjects and give a good shot once for all,,,,what if u cannot apply to cali schools,,definitely u can go for east schools,,they have deadlines in march or feb,,,
without preparing if u give exam,,,may be u will have to sacrifice those schools also which have dealines in march,,,,

And why do u blame ADA????Buddy everyone knows that u cannot take partial exam in subjects which u have passed to get good scores,,,,and if u had a doubt u could have asked on forum,,somebody wud have definitely helped u,,,
Never mind,,,its never too late u have time,,,

A very good luck

hey dont worry too much..i know it must be pretty hard on u right now.......I think it is a good idea to postpone the exams if u wana improve scores in all subjects.....u will have to forego west coast schools....however if u think the scores on the other subjects u have now is ok, then go ahead and give DA.......make ur decison soon and stick with it........coz u will be stressed out more if u dont decide soon..and all of us know how stressful just taking the exam can be...so decide asap and good luck....

you are right........u can retake individual subjects only if u fail in any of them....if u wana improve scores, u have to retake all 4 subjects...
