SAT Essay?

Do you guys think its a big deal if I used the wrong pronoun when talking about the author during the SAT essay? I used "he" not realizing the author is a female.

    I don't think so, I think their main aim is to get a gauge of your analytical skills. Even if they mark you down on it colleges don't place that much importance on the essay anyway

    hey random question but totally worried, my sat score is pretty low and i still submitted to the uc. Do you think they keep records of my sat score or the fact that i gpt declined from the uc? because I'm going reapply again after a jc and im wondering if i ruined my chances of going to a uc coz of my past sat score?

    One of my kids did the exactly same thing (because he started writing without finish reading the prompt), then he has o go back to correct them all ... and hopefully caught them all.

    To answer sopphs
    I used to work in a company that makes software for College admission and registrar offices. It tracks everything you have ever submitted to the college. Many employees (and of course, clients) worked in admission and registrar offices ... they said colleges did try to keep track of what you have submitted, hence wanting a software to help with that effort. But, that was about 12 years ago, maybe their policies have changed. And, if your scores are improving, I think it will work for your advantage.
