    I don't think I did very well. Can I cancel my scores?
    You have until the first Wednesday after you write the test to request your scores be cancelled. Keep in mind though, that all your scores from that test day will be cancelled. If you wrote Bio, Chem, and Physics, you cannot just cancel Physics; all 3 are cancelled.

    The only exception to this rule is for equipment failure, either a calculator (Math I and II) or a CD player (Language with Listening) If your equipment fails, then speak to your proctor immediately during the test; he/she will give you a form to fill out, and only the test affected by the equipment failure will be cancelled.

    Can you pay to get your score early?
    Never heard of that option, and I'm sure it would be popping up here if that were the case (see all the threads of people itching to get their scores) Haven't seen anything to suggest that on the CB website.

    @ az:

    Are you looking at a AP book or an SAT book? You can't pay to get an SAT or SAT II score early. But, for AP scores you can call in at the end of June/beginning of July to get your scores early for a small fee.

    I have the sat II chem book, and it says you can pay extra to get your scores 8 days early. The thing is, I have never heard that before either...

    According to College Board:
    Scores by Phone
    Scores by Phone are released according to the same schedule as Scores by Web.

    To get your score by telephone, call Customer Service on or after the dates listed above, during standard business hours. This service does not send scores to colleges any earlier.

    Your official printed score report will be mailed to you, your high school, and to colleges and scholarship programs designated on your registration several weeks after the test.

    Fee
    There is an additional fee for this service. A credit card is required (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).
    This is where the additional fee comes in, but you don't get the scores earlier.

    what really is the main purpose for the SAT II? is it used for placement, or comparing grade systems of different high schools?

    The main purpose is for college admissions. Most colleges need two, some select ones need three.

    if you are taking a language test on the november date, does it have to be listening or can it be regular?
    You should be able to do just the reading test, as the "Language" test and "Language with Listening" test are considered 2 separate tests, from what I'm reading on the CB website.

    Edit re above question: Just saw a link to an old thread that says you actually cannot take a non-listening language test in November.
    http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/sat-subject-tests-preparation/363658-non-listening-language-tests-november.html

    I couldn't find anything "official" on the CB website, so it might be worth giving them a call and asking someone there.

    I'm sorry if this question has been asked before...but there's a new scoring policy for the SAT I...does the same policy apply for the SAT IIs?

    Can I pick and choose which scores the colleges can view?

    Sorry again if this question has been asked.

    I know that someone said that December scores are accepted, but, with a Dec 31 deadline for the UCs and a score release date of Dec 20-something for the Dec 6 test date, how can I make the deadline without rushing reporting, especially since the UCs receive the scores by mail? Also, do SAT II test scores have different release dates?

    SATI and SATII are released on the same day.

    Directly from the UC website:
    If you apply as a freshman for the fall 2009 term, you must take two SAT Subject Tests and the ACT Assessment plus Writing or SAT Reasoning Test no later than December 2008.

    Typically when the university sets an application deadline, they want your part of the app in by that date; other supporting documents, such as test scores, can arrive a few days later.

    But I'll have to rush-report the test scores? Also, are the initial free score reports sent out to the schools the very moment internet scores are available or when they send a paper copy?

    @ Nbail - note that this is only in effective march 2009

    New SAT Score-Reporting Policy

    and as i understand it, sending SAT II's to a school sends the SAT I's as well?
