URGENT SAT HELP! Scored 2050, lookin for 2350 + in oct!!

<p>How so? Did u receive the January and March Q&A?</p>

<p>Ask around for recent curves.</p>

<p>^ I have the January Q&A and -2 was 790.
Furthermore, I don't have the March one, but I'm fairly sure it wasn't 780.
And in May it definitely wasn't 780. The January test was the easiest out of all 3 SATs I've taken (January, May, June) and I know for a fact that June had either -2 or -3 = 800.
Curves don't "follow a downward trend". It just so happened that the last couple of tests (minus June) were easy. There's no pattern. And -2, before January, was literally always an 800. Pretty sure it was only in March and Jan. that it was a 790.</p>

<p>Thank you very much guys! I'm thinkin of givin SAT II MATH LEVEL 1, 2 N PHY IN NOV and the retake in Oct... I'll follow the blue book, n improve my vocab. But i just can't find any good tips for CR Passages and the Essay!</p>

<p>I took the january test and got the q n a. -2 cr was 780. I can guarantee u.</p>

<p>I second the original question.</p>

<p>I got a 2250 but my Critical Reading score was a 680 (curse you June SAT!). Given that the schools I'm applying to are upper tier, I believe it's worth retaking to at least get into the 700's. Do you guys have any suggestions other than just taking practice tests?</p>

<p>I took the June test and I can guarantee you a -2 was definitely an 800.</p>

<p>^ June test was significantly more difficult than the January one.
@Jasoninny
Dude, the Q&A is sitting right in front of me right now - literally. CR scaled score: 65 (or -2) - 790. 64 - 770. I have absolutely no idea how you got a 780, unless your luck was absolutely horrible or you had a different test, which is highly unlikely since all tests in Jan. are the same, just reshuffled (fairly certain.)
It was the only test, as far as I know, to not have -2 = 800, aside from the March 2010 one.</p>

<p>At any rate, this argument is irrelevant. The most recent tests' curves have nothing to do with how future curves will be. The June test is testimony to that. -3 was 800, based on the curve posted in the results thread.</p>

<p>-2 790 is harsh, and whats worse is that its the hardest section for most people.</p>
