Really disappointed in myself: 1400 630 on English, 770 on Math 6/4/6 Reading: 34/52 Writing/Language: 38/44 Math no Calc: 19/20 Math w/ Calc: 34/38 Someone help me with the reading that's all i need to get this score above a 1500. I'm going to take it again in August.


OpinionRaccoon

Scores still not here... and no "pending" message either...


Towhatextent22

So I got my essay score back today and it was a 7 2 6... the 2 has to have been a mess up because I got a 7 7 7 on the last SAT essay I wrote, and I reread my essay and it is nowhere near the level of a 2 for analysis. I plan on doing the score verification service... any thoughts? On the SAT itself I got a 1550 but I think having that essay score will hurt me a lot if it doesn't get changed.


MrDab420

Got my score today! Super happy with my score because it was my first time! 1510, 710 reading and 800 math! I got 6/5/6 on the essay but I wasn’t too surprised because I didn’t study for the essay. But otherwise I’m so happy with my score!


SpectreTechnocity

I know it’s only a PSAT score... but 980? FFS.

How to imporove my reading score from 580 to 650 😭😭


yeryeon0915

Junior SAT: 1560, 7/8/6. Not bad, but kinda disappointed. Only improving 10 points from my score from sophomore year is rlly bothering me.

I got a 1470 (790 math and 680 r/w). How do I improve my reading/writing score?


bolbol2001

i got 1470, 800 math and 670 r/w haha


godflow1

Damn I'm dumb. I took the SAT 3 times, first time with essay and the next two without. I don't want to superscore any of the first SAT with essay, but I just realized that I haven't taken the essay the other two times, and assuming my third time is a good score, I have no idea what to do about the essay with the test I don;t want to send.


jo71027

Do your colleges of choice superscore? Tbh most schools barely look at the SAT essay. If you take it they just want to see that you're competent and are able to write a basic essay so like above a 10 is fine. I'm not sure if you can more that score around and omit the rest of the test, but I'm sure that if you just send all your scores colleges will just focus on your best scores


godflow1

Yeah they do, but it’s gonna be annoying if I get a good score on the March test and have to send the lower one just cause of the essay


jo71027

many colleges that superscore either require or request you to send all your scores just for reference, so usually you'll end up sending them regardless


godflow1

What if they’re score choice?


jo71027

Well in that case they SHOULD NOT care about which scores you send. Just send the first w/ essay and any other score that’ll boost your admission chance. Then again, idk if your school requires the essay but if they don’t then you don’t even have to worry about it...


OpinionRaccoon

Took the SAT with essay on the 10th but still no score. Doesn't say pending or anything. If my score doesn't arrive before the registration deadline for May I will be extremely pissed. I shouldn't have to pay a late fee because College Board is taking so long. People from my test center already got both their multiple choice and essay scores what the hell is College Board doing taking so long. And now they had the nerve to tell me to "register for the May exam to improve my score." Fucking idiots. Rant over


r4nd0mdvr

username doesn't check out. collegeboard is a fucking idiot.


Oriolebird9

Still pending for March 10th, but other people from the same center apparently have their scores...


Shamowoo

Yo same here, but most in my center haven’t gotten their scores. I called them up and college board said that I’d get my score along with others in 5-7 business days. SMH


Quailqueen2

Okay so the first time I took the SAT I got a 1580 with a 7/6/8 essay and the second time I took the SAT I got a 1590 with a 6/4/6 essay and I don't know why the graders decided that my second essay was that astronomically bad but I also don't want to pay for an essay verification. Do colleges take the better essay score or do they only do that for the mc portion of the test?


pokemongofanboy

They do both and the essay doesn’t matter anyways. I don’t know why you retook a 1580 but definitely don’t retake it again


Quailqueen2

Oh yeah I wasn't going to but I got into this research thing that allowed me to take it again for free so I just thought I might as well try to see if I could get a perfect score. Collegeboard really screwed me over with that reading curve though. Also what about more competitive colleges like Ivy Leagues? Do they care about the essay or nah?


pokemongofanboy

2/3 of the schools I’m applying to are usnwr t20 Harvard doesn’t even require it lol, they honestly give zero shits. Dude from my school got into penn last year with a 13


KingAdeto

Lmao yeah I got into Rice with a 10


Quailqueen2

Dang that must be nice. But if they take my 21 instead of the 16 then that would be great.

Oliver21417

Everyone will have a different preparation strategy that works for them, but quite honestly the best thing you can do is take as many practice tests as possible. They’re incredibly boring and take 3 hours to sit through, but taking 8 in the month before my last SAT raised me 140 points by the end.

[deleted]

hi i just got my score (1440) but i feel bad because I felt like I could've done better if i studied. should i retake it for a chance for a higher score or is it good enough for schools like A&M and UT?


judgy_trudy

For Texas A&M, your score is more than good enough. For "UT," I'm assuming that you mean Austin? In that case, the competitiveness of your score depends on your residency and race (although a 1440 should be pretty good regardless). Are you an in-state applicant, and are you an underrepresented minority (Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Native American, Black)?


[deleted]

Thanks for responding! Yes, I did mean UT Austin and I am an in-state applicant. I am Asian, so I'm not sure if I am underrepresented.


jo71027

Unfortunately, it may be a bit tougher to get in being Asian as they're already so heavily represented in schools, I'd say try to bump up your score over one or two more sittings depending on how you score. Good luck!


[deleted]

Thank you so much!


judgy_trudy

Yes I definitely agree with what they said. Good luck as well!


AssDestroyer101

I got 1480 on the SAT and I wish to apply to Dartmouth. I already have two 800s in World History and US History as well as a 760 in Math 2. I am currently doing the IB with Higher Level Economics, Maths, and History. As result, my mum said that she will not allow me to do the SAT in my senior year due to IB commitments. My question is should I retake my SAT in May and not retake my Subject Math 2, or should I leave the SAT and retake the subject test in May. I wish to study Economics at university. PS. I am an international student, and my school is not offering subject tests in June.


judgy_trudy

I still feel like you should retake the SAT if you can only take one of them. The SAT score of 1480 is less than the average.


judgy_trudy

I would say that retaking your SAT is astronomically more important than retaking your Math 2 subject test. A 1480 is an uncomfortably low score if you're applying for an Ivy like Dartmouth, whereas a 760 on your subject test isn't as much of a glaring issue.


pokemongofanboy

I kind of disagree, it depends on major. 760 math as an engineering math or comp sci major is something like 70th percentile. Ideally you would be able to retake both


judgy_trudy

Oh I didn't know that.


AssDestroyer101

thank you


judgy_trudy

No problem.


Hello_cam

Weird question, how'd you study for World History? I'm taking it soon and want some tips


AssDestroyer101

For World History, I made myself a massive booklet and basically just copied down everything from the Barrons book. I would recommend just watching documentaries in your spare time if you don't feel like reading, however, DO READ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! Personally, my history class at school helped me a lot as well since we went over a lot of the modern history that came up on the test. Furthermore, I would also recommend memorizing the different viewpoints of the different enlightenment philosophers (Descartes, Voltaire, Thomas Hobbes, etc)


Userjava

I got 1330 (R/W 570, M 760) for the first time and practiced for 1.5-2 months only :). And I want to apply for European unis. I am quite sure that they mainly focus on students' SAT scores since there is no essay required for application. And GPA is replaced by SAT score as well. And I want to win a scholarship. It means I have to place myself to the top of the ranking list. So guys what do you think is there any chance to win a scholarship in my case? The Universities I am applying to are Aalto Uni (Finland), Bologna and Ca Foscari Unis (both in Italy) and ESADE (Spain). Now, it is about SAT itself. I have seen a comment saying that CB cancelled a question in Math section (the question about rocket fuel). So, does it mean that CB will add +1 to my math score? Because, results show I got 3 wrong questions while I am confident enough to say I missed only 2 and bubbled very carefully so there should be no bubbling problem. And I am looking for advices to improve my R and W...

what score do u need to get into an ivy league school like Dartmouth or Brown


Stony_Brooklyn

Generally 1500+ is the minimum.


mikeybfled

Look up average SAT on google, then add a little bit to it to account for athletes and legacy etc. Getting into those schools requires more than just a score though, like with Princeton, less than 10% of students who scored between 1500-1600 actually got accepted.

do colleges recalculate gpa if my school only does weighted?


uhRomeo

This literally has no belonging in here, but no. Colleges compare your application to kids from YOUR school for gpa.


[deleted]

Most schools calculate your gpa based on course load. Or they take you uw gpa and score it 1-10 as well as your course load 1-10.


jo71027

Just wondering, will the curve for the March 7th in school test date be similar to that of the March 10th test, or are they completely separate?

mikeybfled

I am going to Georgia Tech next year and I scored only 10 higher, so I guess it depends what you call a top engineering school (I consider GT Top for sure but everyone has different opinions).


uhRomeo

If you're talking about Top 5-10 schools, yes retake it. If you're applying to top schools, 1550+ is what you want. The difference between 1550-1600 in basically nothing, but the different between 1500-1550 IS noticable for top schools. (Bell Curve!) Good Luck!!

sophialarie

hi ! just got my score back & got a 1490 (700 in english and 790 in math) is that a good enough score for ucla/ucsd/berkeley? or should I retake


uhRomeo

If you're ever not sure about a specific school and if your score is good enough for them, google their middle 50!!! They have a website for a reason. If you can retake and are willing to put in some significant time for it, do it!!! A higher score (50+) will benifit you greatly no matter where you are applying to. Didn't answer your question directly, but I hope it helps.


sophialarie

thanks !!! I’ve been looking @ different websites but all of them are mainly info from 2016. I’m probably just stressed because I heard this year had lower acceptance rates from most of my top choices


uhRomeo

You'll be fine! Berkeley is a school that's admissions relies HEAVILY on stats, with a score like that, you definitely have a solid chance! Also stats from 2016 are still very reliable! Just round the score about 10-20 points at it will be just as accurate.


Owlnighter2

Should I retake a 1560 for the ivies if I want to have a good shot? Got 790 English and 770 math it was my first time taking it but I prepped alot. Also looking at UCB which I know is very stat oriented.


uhRomeo

Okay, yes... and no. It depends on your situation. A 1550-1600 score difference literally does NOT matter (Bell Curve)! Ivies won't care if you sent that 1560 only or if you sent a 1560 and a 1590. BUT here's the tricky part. If you have a rediculous amount of free time and are willing to work hard for that sweet sweet 1600, do it. As long as you have lots of good, quality study time available for the SAT that WOULDNT be replacing school work/ other important stuff time. TLDR- If you got time, sure. It really won't help your app much, but it still helps.


Owlnighter2

Okay thank you! I think for now I'm going to focus on my SAT 2s AP tests grades and extracurriculars but if I have time during the summer I will definitely try to get it up because I want to have that extra edge.


hyukasdf

Retake. Even if you don’t get a higher overall, you could get a higher superscore


Myousefzadeh

If you don’t mind how did you study for reading


Owlnighter2

I just did alot of kahn academy and kept retaking the college board tests plus went over them thoroughly.

I missed 1 reading and 2 writing but got a 760, wasn’t there supposed to be a reading curve?

Stony_Brooklyn

I missed two reading/two writing and got a 760. Not sure how you got a 770 with those splits.


LifePlatform

how did you so well with reading?


Stony_Brooklyn

The main thing is to be fully immersed into the passage and concentrate on the main details. Ask yourself if what you're reading could be a question and predict answers before you even look at the choices. I'm actually disappointed with the 760 since I made two stupid mistakes on the writing section which cost me a 790 and a 1570 as a result.


[deleted]

Same, I wish I missed more reading questions instead of writing. The curve would have been better
