Should i scrap the project?
I tried to think of another means of measurement. Perhaps AP tests, or some other form that doesn't deal with giving money to the ETS.
But, I can't really think of another good measure.... so, i think what i may need to do is extend my timeline. The general concept would be to use a full year of studying before taking the two subject exams. I am stubborn though, so i am going to see where i am by February before abandoning my current timeline.
Wish me luck!
