Let's say that in spring I got an 800 on the math section, and 200s for the critical reading and writing sections. If in fall I got a 200 in math, and 800s in the critical reading and writing sections, would I be able to pick and choose which scores to report and say I got 2400 as the combined SAT score?
I know "every college is different" and all that, but generally speaking, do most colleges look at the best score in each subject, or do they want the best overall test?
