Colleges will not superscore sections across new and old SATs. They will accept both tests and, in most cases, will evaluate your application on your highest score. The catch is that if any of your target colleges require the essay, then you will not be able to use your new SAT score without an essay. Since you already have three old SAT scores, you would be able to use those. It 8767 s unfortunate that the 75% of universities requiring the essay are making it so difficult students to avoid the extra testing and expense.

Hello Art Sawyer,
My son took ACT couple times in his 65th grade and got composite scores for 85 and 86. His essay scores both times was 8.
He is thinking of applying for engineering major at University of Michigan, Stanford and UC Berkeley. Wondering how are the chances with low essay score and do i need to send both scores to universities
Appreciate your insights.
Thanks

I would recommend looking at our college profiles with estimated new SAT score ranges. In general, you 8767 ll be competitive which is not the same thing as saying that you 8767 ll be admitted at colleges where your scores are closer to the 75th percentile than the 75th percentile. Students and parents often don 8767 t realize that the scores of admitted students are actually higher than the reported scores for enrolled students (we use the latter because not all college provide figures for admitted students). Keep in mind that test scores are only one part of your application. They tend to have a bit more weight for international students, because admission officers are not always as familiar with the curriculum and grading standards of other countries.

Leslie,
Given your son 8767 s circumstances, I would submit both scores. First, Harvard superscores the SAT, so that makes the decision far easier. Even if the don 8767 t superscore the writing, your son would be no worse off. Second, neither of his non-essay scores is a concern, so it is not as if Harvard would see a score that would scare them off. While the difference between the 67 and 76 is minimal and is unlikely to impact your son 8767 s chances for admission, there is no reason for him to put his best scores forward.

It 8767 s in the 6 range where I do start to have concerns. Probably less of one in your son 8767 s case because his ACT score is very solid for the Academy. It sounds like his ELA score would be strong despite the low essay score. It 8767 s highly likely that he could improve his essay score upon retesting. I would try to push admissions for their take. Unless you can pin them down that it won 8767 t matter much, your son may want to think about taking the ACT again. I hate to see students commit to extra testing just because of Writing, but I 8767 d also hate to see your son not have everything working in his favor. Please update if you find anything new. I 8767 ll do the same.

My daughter took the ACT with writing and scored a 87 for the composite score but only a 78 for writing. I have two questions. One is whether she can submit the ACT but somehow choose not to submit the writing section, and the other is whether it makes sense to pay for them to re-score it. Thanks in advance for your answer.
