Juniors, if you took the school day SAT on March 1st, your scores are now available on the College Board website (www.collegeboard.org). Now that you have your results, be sure to watch this score report video to better understand how to utilize this information. When looking over your score report, you will notice your scores now include subscores and cross-test scores. With these additional scores, the SAT is getting more detailed when it comes to showing colleges the skills and knowledge you’ve been building throughout your school career. Additionally, your online score report will help you look beyond the numbers. This report will show how you compare against your grade-level peers, figure out where you can improve, and get a personalized study plan from Khan Academy. Since you took the essay portion of the test as well, you will also get a scanned copy of your response.
If you have not done this already, SAT also offers Score Choice where you choose which test scores you send to colleges. You can send a single day’s scores, or you can send scores of every SAT you have taken. The only thing you cannot do is send partial scores from different days. Check the score choice policy of every college where you are applying. Some schools require you to send every score, even though many colleges and universities will consider your best score for admission. Visit the College Board website or call 866-756-7346 with any questions.
