Questions About SAT Score Reports

Hi everyone!

I have recently just found out that Duke needs all applicants to report their "full testing record for either SAT and SAT Subject exams or ACT exams taken in high school". So here I have two questions:

I tried to use Score Choice on CB, and they allowed me to only send certain scores (you know for some schools they tell you that score choice is unavailable?). Therefore, how would Duke know if I haven't sent them all the testing records?

Secondly, I got a really bad Maths I score (<700), as I wasn't feeling well during the test. On the other hand, my Maths II is 770, and my SAT 1 maths is 800. Would that make up my unsatisfactory Maths I? Cuz I really don't wanna take Maths I again.

Any reply will be so much appreciated! Thanks in advance :D

    You are on your honor if collegeboard did not make you send all SAT.

    I don't think the 700 is a big deal given the others!

    I think Duke will be able to see what date the score was from. If your subscores are from different dates, then they should know you are not sending them everything.

    Thanks @HRSMom ! So you think that if CB doesn't stop you from submitting all scores, then Duke won't find out either?

    Thanks @Mango920452 Yeah, that can be very true. I'm not as worried about SAT I results... But my SAT II testing records are very satisfying. Any idea on if they can find about SAT II results?

    @lovemjrnas this is actually a really contentious topic. I tried to look it up when I was sending my subject tests at well. I was stopped when I didn't send all of them by collegeboard. I was also told that colleges may or may not be able to see if you sent all the scores. It's one of the many mysteries of the admissions office. I think the only way someone can hide some of their subject tests from Duke is if they are sending in the ACT. If Duke were to find out you were not being honest if you sent your SAT scores, then you would have to face the consequences. IMO, Send all of your scores. Duke promises to only look at the highest ones anyways.

    @Mango920452 Thanks so much for the clarifications, and I have decided to just send in all scores. Luckily, my SAT 1 Maths and SAT 2 Maths II can kind of prove my maths ability :D Thanks again :)
