Sending SAT scores
Answered

Hi all, quick question.

I need to send official scores to 7< schools that I have applied/am applying to. I took the SAT twice, and scored slightly worse the second time. Should I send both scores, or only the highest? Is there any benefit to sending both? I scored ten points less in both EBRW and Math on the second time, but still have a respectable score.

I know that different schools have different policies, but this is for the ones that allow me to share select scores.

Thanks!

In my opinion you should just send the better score

I would not send in your 10-point lower EBRW or MATH scores to those colleges.

It doesn't help you one iota.
