Do colleges still superscore and, if so, which ones?

As a junior, I'm trying to figure out my options for improving my standardized test scores. I've heard that some colleges superscore, but I'm not sure which ones do. Could someone provide me with a list or a credible source for finding schools that superscore? Thanks! 🙏

Absolutely, many colleges still practice superscoring for standardized test results. Superscoring is when a college combines the highest section scores from multiple test dates to create one "super-score." This can be advantageous for students who perform better on different sections during separate test dates. Both the SAT and ACT can be superscored by various colleges.

However, it's essential to note that not all colleges and universities superscore. The practice varies depending on the specific institution's policies. Since it's not feasible to provide an extensive list of colleges that superscore, I recommend starting by checking the websites of the colleges you're interested in. Look for information under their 'Admission Requirements' or just search the term "superscore" on their websites. If you're still not sure, you can even reach out to their admissions offices for clarification.

Best of luck with your testing and college applications!
