I know this is in the personal section.

Anyway. I got a good score in writing and math, however I want to get a higher score in reading. So I just paid to take the exam again (INB4 the ASAT fappers say the SAT is a waste of time.)

If I take the SAT again and score lower on math, will I have to report that score instead of the better one?

I know the SAT takes the better score overall, but what about the individual subjects?

Every application I ever completed that asked for individual scores asked for my highest individual scores, even if they were from different tests.

Yea, but you send only 1 exam. If they just looked at your honest responses instead of what you got, then I could just say I got an 800 on all the exams :).

Curse you all for giving me two different answers! CURSE YOU ALL!!!!

lol my response only matters for applications that request individual scores. Some ask for overall scores. I saw fewer of those, though.

When I was applying to colleges, I sent all exams I had taken, not just the best or most recent.

It's different for each school. Some use best single session, some use the best for each section (superscore), and some take all of the scores.

I'm an ACT fapper, sorry.

But, I did take the PSAT.

I took the sat once and didn't take the act , I know all they asked for at Purdue and rose hulman was for my highest math score and my highest reading score.
Good thing they didn't ask for writing, I scored like a 400 or something terrible on it

My school's not asking for writing either.

They should really update it to math, reading, and typing with speel check.

When I wrote my essay I pretty much filled in maybe 3/4ths of all the pages. I saw this one girl next to me who had probably written five sentences when the test was over.
