My son took the SAT multiple times and while his single-test scores are in the low 1500s, his superscore is 1560.
A friend’s daughter is in the same class and her single test score from this past April is 1580.
So when a top tier school that uses superscoring looks at these SAT scores, do they assign 1560 to my son and 1580 to my friend’s daughter? She has 20 points more than my son and I understand that. Do they peg my son’s score down since he did not get 1560 in the same attempt? (going against the superscore rule)
The other question is do schools figure that a 1580 is “better” than a 1560? Or are they of the opinion that as long as a kid gets over their threshold (say 1550), they are evaluated on other criteria and SAT differences no longer are important?
I know there are several other factors like grades, ECs that come into play, my question is about SAT only.
