Should I take my SAT I twice to boost my chances?

<p>Hey. I'll be taking my SAT I for the first time on June 4th.</p>

<p>Here are the international dates that the College Board's admin e-mailed to me when I asked about the next dates available:</p>

<p>October 1 (Saturday) & October 2 (Sunday) *i'm confused, does it mean, it's administered on both dates, or only one of them?
November 6 (Saturday) & November 7 (Sunday)
December 3 (Saturday) & December 4 (Sunday)</p>

<p>*</p>

<p>I was planning to take Physics and Math Level 2 subject tests in October.</p>

<p>If I take my SAT I again in November/December and obtain a higher score than June, can I submit the higher scores for Regular Decision? What about Early Decision? This is because some of the deadlines are in November and taking the exam in December would mean I can only get my scores in January right?</p>

<p>(another question I would like to ask is, what's the difference between early decision and early action?)</p>

<p>The Sunday tests are available only if you have a verifiable religious issue with the Saturday test.</p>

<p>Yes, if the college allows for score choice. You can submit both in any case.</p>

<p>December is too late, and I think November is too late as well for early decision, but the latter may be dependent on the college; other CC'ers will know. October should be safe for early decision. Scores aren't available until about three weeks after the test.</p>

<p>You should take it for superscoring.... Superscoring is when a college takes your best scores from each section of the SAT (CR, M, and W) and combine them to give you an even higher overall SAT score.
For example, if, on your first try, you get a 600 in each section and then in the next one get 580 in CR, 620 in math, and 620 in writing, you now have an 1840 rather than an 1800. :)</p>
