    Does it really cost $100 now? That doesn't seem worth it to me.
  • sonic pwrsonic pwr Posts: 769Registered User Member
    it cost $100 to handschore multiple choice and to check if essay score was entered correctly(not rescore essay)
    otherwise it costs $50 to handscore multiple choice only

    If you got a 200-400 on some section and you're absolutely sure you deserved a 700 or more, I'd do it. Otherwise, who cares? Your scores in the same section from other tests will show that you know your stuff.

    its that i got 4 wrong in math (710) and im pretty sure i only got 2 wrong which means (740-750) also i remeber erasing some answers and changing them, maybe i didnt erase fully?

    It would be worth a $100 to me, but I have money because I drive an 8 year old contour.

    even though you feel like you only got two wrong, you probably messed up on the grid-ins.

    freakin' grid-ins!!!

    Why not just take it again? Unless you got WAY lower than you expected, I'd just give it another shot if you can.
  • sonic pwrsonic pwr Posts: 769Registered User Member
    i took it 4 times, thats enough and also Dec is last test day for most colleges im applying to, also, im pretty sure my gridins are correct cuz i skimmed through the SAT 1 Dec Thread on collegeconfidential

    the probability of erasure mistakes is quite small actually. the machine is more accurate than one may think. unless you distinctly remember erasing an answer and a definite black mark still being there, i would not recommend wasting $100. I would say one out of every 500 kids actually gets their score changed.

    If the machine is "not sure" about an erasure, it kicks the paper out, and a real person looks at the scanned page and makes a decision.

    this DEC handscoring reminded me just now, i prolly made a lot of erasures on SAT 2 CHemistry in JUNE, i got 640, but i remember erasing alot, do u think i could get that handscored even though its June??
  • sonic pwrsonic pwr Posts: 769Registered User Member
    **** i called CB and they said its too late to rescore SAT 2 CHEm in June, oh well, ill just do the SAT 1 in DEC
  • sonic pwrsonic pwr Posts: 769Registered User Member
    also regarding gridins, if i wrote the answer right but bubbled incorrectly will i get pts through handscoring?
