I recently took two SAT’s in March and I’m not sure if I should take it a third time. I got a 1520 on my first one (730 V 790 M) and a 1490 on my second one (710 V 780 M) . The higher verbal score was about 20-30 points below what I was scoring on practice tests. If I were to take the SAT again, it would be the May test date. I’ve already signed up for it but I can cancel it if it’s not worth taking (I first wanted to see how I did on the March school day SAT). I’m taking the AP Lang exam this year, which has a MC section similar to the SAT reading. I want to apply to some selective schools (Tufts, NYU, Brown, Vanderbilt). Would a higher score make much of a difference?
Thanks for your advice!
