Two low SATs, high superscore

aVeryHappyChildaVeryHappyChild Registered User Posts: 39 Junior Member
So here's the deal with my SAT:

I took the test twice, once in March and once in August. My first score was a 1380 (660 R, 720 M). My second score was a 1360 (740 R, 620 M).

My superscore is a 1460. Will colleges that accept a superscore care that my test average lowered if my superscore is decently high?

    A lot of colleges accept superscores. They will not care that your two scores are low. Thats the entire point of a superscore. They want you to show your best self. Also, a 1380 and a 1360 are amazing scores without superscoring them. you are fine. Best of luck!!

    In theory, you should only have a 1460 next to your name in the evaluation process.

    I have a gut feel that those scores would fall a tad behind someone with just a single 740/720 test result. But probably not by much.

    If the college states that they superscore you are fine. They have to abide by their own rules

    It depends. If the college allows you to superstore, that’s great. Some colleges will do their own super scoring. Other colleges will require all tests taken, in which case you must submit them all.
