Score reporting confusion

Hey everyone, quick question. This score choice thing confuses me. So tomorrow I am signed up to take three sat subject tests. However, I have decided that I might opt out of one because I think I will do bad because of lack of prep. Some people are telling me that I might as well take the third one because I already paid for it, and just see how i do. Question: If I take the third one and do really bad, can I hide this score from colleges? Specifically the UC's and a few ivies? Thanks.

    hey, i was wondering the same thing so i went on CB and read about the score choice.. here is what it said:

    Score Choice™
    If you so choose, you can send the scores you feel best
    demonstrate your abilities—at no additional cost. Score
    Choice™ allows you to select which scores to send each
    college by test date for the SAT and by individual test taken
    for SAT Subject Tests™. You can choose scores from one,
    several or all SAT test dates in your record.
    Score Choice is optional. If you decide not to use it, we
    will send all of your scores to the institutions you select to
    receive your scores.
    The College Board has worked with colleges and universities
    to make it easier for you to know which scores you should
    send to each institution. Take a look at the score-sendingscreens at www.collegeboard.com/satscores.

    ^^So yeah if you do poorly you can use score choice for SAT II's, but when you go to the score choice page, it says it kind of depends on the school. Some schools "require" you to send in all the scores.. I dont know if that means you ABSOLUTELY have to, or it is recommended..
