    Please explain what " super score the SAT means" thanks.

    Super scoring is taking the best score for each section (Math, CR, Writing) from multiple retakes and combining them, rather than just taking scores from one sitting.

    yes, bucknell does super score sats. most other colleges do as well. i actually thought taking and combining all your best scores in each area was the standard.

    A few even mix the SAT/ACT reports ... Wash U in St. L, USNA, other SAs.

    Whistle Pig: what do you mean; mix the SAT/ACT reports? I know that Wash U supercores both the SAT and the ACT individually but mix? Never heard of that one......Are you saying, hypothetically, that if your SAT CR/M are higher than your composite ACT, but your ACT writing is higher than your SAT writing, they will use that to combine and to help you??? and vice versa??
  • Whistle PigWhistle Pig - Posts: 4,093 Senior Member
    Yea, they take the highest from either test. SAs do the same.
  • rodneyrodney Registered User Posts: 9,406 Senior Member
    In each section? Never heard of that...I know they will take your best score, SAT OR ACT, but I have never heard of mixing and matching across tests...Actually, makes my day if that is true......Forgive me, but what are SA's????? Oh, NM Service academies????

    Consider your day made. And there are some other places that I once knew but have lost, some like Wash U and the SAs, highly competitive.

    rodney .. here you go ... from Wash U website ...
    I took the old version of the SAT/ACT. Do I need to take the new version to apply to Washington University?

    Beginning with the Class of 2011, students applying as freshmen for admission in fall 2008, Washington University will accept only scores from the new versions of the SAT and ACT.
    We accept the following standardized tests:
    SAT Test (includes a writing test)
    ACT Test (with the optional writing section)
    ACT Test (without the writing section)
    We do not require the writing test if you submit ACT Scores.
    Test results from any of your high school years are acceptable, though we encourage senior-year testing. Primary consideration will be given to the highest individual scores, whenever they occurred.

    I know that Penn State UP does not super score for sure.
  • jec7483jec7483 Registered User Posts: 859 Member
    Dzirob33 is correct, PSU UP definitely does not super score.
