Probably not GRE (expectations for grad school are very different, usually), but for the ACT/SAT it depends on the school. Some schools want different things, and some emphasize things like creativity, innovation. Spending all your time studying for a test doesn’t demonstrate those at all. Most schools are looking for more than just good grades and high test scores. That’s why they have essays and recommendations, to get a more thorough picture of the student.

If you decide to go the route of applying for a different major and then transferring (presumably because EECS is more competitive), make sure to do your homework first. In a lot of schools it is just as hard to transfer into EECS once you’re there as it is to get into it in the first place. You could end up shooting yourself in the foot if you are really intent on studying EECS.
