How much did your SAT score change the second time you took it?
I just took my SAT for the first time. Although I haven't received my score yet, I'd like to know how others improved in their scores the second time they took it because I'd like to take it again as well.
I just want to say that practice is ALWAYS going to trump over everything else, and it is key towards getting a 100+ improvement! I think that if you usually get anything above a 1400 or a 1450+, then you are in a good zone and don't really need to improve as much for most colleges. I recommend you practice for about ~2 months along with ~5 practice tests if you are planning to take it a second time and want to improve you score.
Good luck to you! I think you did amazing :)
I'm same as @Booknerd_13, my SAT went down 30 points the second time I took it, but my ACT went up by 5. Don't be afraid to take the tests multiple times and don't get discouraged!
I actually went DOWN the second time I took it. But don't get discouraged. My ACT score went up 3 points when I took it a second time. It more about what fits you and your abilities (SAT for English and ACT for math).
taking my first sat next week!!! ahh i'm so nervous! anyways good luck to everyone taking sat/act!
Ahh good luck to you!! You are going to do great :)
