ACT Score Drop

Hello, I took the ACT this July and I got a lower score (31) than I did in March (33). My reading section dropped by 6 points, and my math dropped by 3 points. Should I cancel this new score completely? My superscore is still a 33 if I include this July test. If I am applying to an Ivy League, do I have to report the cancelled score as well?
Also, I took the SAT and went from a 1350 to a 1460. Should I report those scores instead of the ACT scores?

    First find out if your high school lists SAT and ACT test scores on the transcripts they send to colleges. Then research the requirements of each college you plan to attend. If you are not required to send all scores, just send your best ones.

    I will be applying to Yale early action, and they require all scores to be sent (either all ACT scores or all SAT/SAT II test scores) I worried that the large score drop in my reading and math section of the ACT will be viewed very negatively.

    Well, it could. But there is nothing you can legitimately do about this now. To start off, cheating on the app requirements is not a good idea for many reasons. So if you apply to schools that want each test score you have., you should report all of your test scores.

    Thank you, I will keep that in mind.
