Fall Intake or spring ? Answered
I got only 1340 on my December SAT. (Maths-750 Eng -590) cause I didn't have enough time to prepare for it . I only prepared for 13 days. My family is not that strong financially. So I am looking around for colleges that would provide at least full tuition worth scholarships. But looking at my SAT scores I don't think I'll get any . I'm in a big dilemma right now . And I don't even have such significant ECAs .
Should I give the SAT exam again and indulge myself in ECAS taking a break year or apply with current sat scores?

I think you should definitely retake the SAT again. While 1340 is a rather good score, it is not above the 99th percentile. It also depends on which colleges you're trying to apply to for full-tuition scholarships. If you're aiming for prestigious colleges, then you should definitely retake the SAT or apply test optional. Hope that helps!
You will be hard pressed to find any full tuition scholarship based on your 1340. I don't know if you are a junior or senior. There's not much you can do if you are a senior, the SAT window has closed. If you are a junior, then I would spend a lot of time getting your Verbal score above 700, preferably 750. It's equally important to show some evidence of community service and leadership because most merit scholarships a critical of how involved you are in helping others. A high SAT score alone is not enough to get a full ride scholarship.
Unless you are prepared to improve the total package of your academics and ECs, it will still be very difficult to get such a thing.
