SAT with Essay Requirement

VikramNVikramN Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I am a junior in high school right now, and I'm looking into UCs and noticed that all UCs require either the SAT with Essay or the written ACT. I have taken 2 SATs with Essays and one SAT without Essay and this is what I've received.

1st SAT with Essay: 1350 (7,6,7)
2nd SAT with Essay: 1450 (6,5,6)
3rd SAT without ESSAY: 1500

Now, I just found this out, and I don't know if it's possible for my essay score from my 1st SAT can be superscored into my 3rd SAT. Some say that it can, while others say it cannot. What do I do? Do I have to retake the SAT with Essay again?

    UC’s do not Superscore and the UC’s will only consider your SAT with essay so the 1450. If you are happy with the 1450 then leave it alone. If not, then a retake is in order.
