Can I report SAT II scores without reporting SAT I scores?

I got a better score on the ACT than the SAT, so I was planning on just sending my ACT scores to colleges. I'm applying to schools that ask you to send all scores from either the SAT I/SAT II, the ACT, or both tests. My problem is that I did very well on my SAT subject tests, so I'd like colleges to...

Send all SATs or all ACTs to Yale?

I have a 2400 on the SAT and a 35 on the ACT. I know I have nothing to worry about with both of these scores, but my issue is with SAT subject tests. I kind of went overboard and took too many subject tests, and two out of my five scores are in the 600s. I'm worried these scores will hurt me in the ...

Taking the SAT If I Already Have a 36 ACT?

I took the ACT with Writing, and I got a 36 composite score. However, I've heard that some schools prefer the SAT over the ACT. Should I take the SAT as well?

Does your ACT essay score impact your composite score?

I know on the SAT the essay is incorporated into the Writing score. Does the ACT do something similar? Or is the essay just a separate score that's not included in your composite at all?

Are scores from state-mandated ACTs acceptable on college applications?

I live in a state where all high school students have to take the ACT. Are my scores from the state-mandated test ok to submit to colleges? Or do I need to take the ACT again independently and submit those scores instead?

ACT score decreased by 5 points on second attempt?

I've taken the ACT twice, and I'm worried because my composite score decreased by 5 points on my second attempt. Could this have a negative impact on my application? Or will colleges largely ignore the second score and just look at the first one?

Is it bad to take the ACT more than 3 times?

I've taken the ACT 3 times, and I've gotten the same composite score (28) every. single. time. It only goes up to a 29 even with superscoring, and I really would like to score above a 30. Will I look bad to colleges if I take the test a fourth time?

30 ACT score: should I retake it for California state universities?

2190 SAT and 33 ACT: Which should I take now?

I've taken the SAT twice, and my superscore is a 2190. The issue I have is that my critical reading score is not up to the same level as my other scores (660 vs. 750 on Math and 780 on Writing). I decided to take an ACT practice test as an experiment and got a 33 without any prep. Now I'm in a dilem...

33 ACT score - should I retake for top colleges?

I've consistently gotten 35-36s on practice tests, but there were some distractions at my test center, and I missed a few questions on the Science section. As a result, I ended up with a 33 composite score. I know a 33 isn't a bad score, but I don't want to disadvantage myself unnecessarily if I can...

Mid-20s on ACT Reading - how to improve?

I keep taking practice tests, but my score never seems to shift from around a 25 on the Reading section. Going straight to the questions didn't work at all for me. Should I just read the whole passage very fast first? Every time I take it I freak out about time...got any tips for me?

Is the ACT harder than the SAT?

I just took an ACT practice test, and it seemed super hard to me in comparison to the SAT! I ran out of time on everything except Math (which I actually thought was relatively easy).

Should I retake the ACT or try the SAT instead?

I got a 30 on the ACT, but I didn't take it with Writing. I wasn't expecting to get this high of a score the first time around, so I figured it was fine to save Writing for a retake. At this point, I have to either take the ACT again with Writing or take the SAT. I'm thinking maybe I should go with...

MIT with 33 ACT Score But 27 on Reading?

I'm hoping to apply to some very selective engineering colleges, including MIT and Caltech. I'm a little worried about my ACT scores because I only got a 27 on the Reading section. This is six points below any of my other section scores. Will it hurt me in the admissions process?

Do top colleges require SAT II scores if you send the ACT?

I know that the two tests are pretty different, but will studying for the SAT make you more prepared for the English, Reading and Math sections of the ACT? I've already taken the SAT, but I want to try out the ACT too, and I'm not sure what my game plan should be or if I even need to study more.
