Should I worry about sending my SAT essay scores?

I recently took the SAT and did well on the test itself. However, I got essay scores that were less than ideal. Is it possible to only send my Reading/Language and Math portions by omitting the essay scores? Should I even be worried if the colleges I am applying to do not require the SAT essay?

Essays are not considered for most of the colleges now and SAT even removed essay portion going forward. But if you took essay portion in the earlier tests then there is not a way to remove just essay when sending. I wouldn’t worry about it too much unless it is really low score. Even then it wouldn’t hurt to send if you did well on math/ reading/writing.
