As a nervous test taker, how would I explain average SAT scores to colleges?
While I have SAT scores that are good enough to send to more than half my schools, one school wants to know why I am not submitting my scores; I explained my hopes for my first score, how I needed ample time to study for my second test (but it got cancelled), and how I was preparing to take it a third time but I felt uncomfortable/unsafe given the current situation. I was wondering if I should add my test anxiety to the explanation? If so, how should I go about explaining that? Thank you!

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You could say that Oh COVID-19 didn't allow me to take it but that would also be 'misleading' so being truthful usually works giving like an explanation that "I wasn't happy with my score and I wasn't able to take it another time due to COVID-19." I would say might be the best one. It's honest and truthful(if that is your circumstance).
