2320 SAT on first try - Retake to try for a 2400?

I took the SAT as a junior and somehow got a 2320 on my first try. My classmates are telling me not to take it again since there's a good chance my score will drop instead, and my guidance counselor says that it doesn't matter either way because my score will still be in the same general range (99th...

Do ACT Subscores Matter for SAT Conversion?

How much do Math and English ACT subscores matter when approximating your SAT score from your ACT score? For example, does getting a 30 with subscores of E: 33 M:32 R: 28 S: 28 look better than getting a 30 with subscores of E: 27 M: 27 R: 28 S: 36? I know that a 30 on the ACT is around a 2000 on th...

Convert 31 on ACT Math to SAT Math?

What does a 31 on the ACT Math section convert to for SAT Math (the regular SAT, not the subject test)? If you do it mathematically, a 31/36 is approximately a 688/800, but I've heard that the scores are actually equalized to something else because of percentiles - closer to a 720-840 for a 31. Is t...

2310 on the SAT, should I also take the ACT?

I currently have a 2310 SAT composite from the December 2014 test and have been considering retaking it again for a higher (hopefully perfect) score to make up for my lower grade point average. Would having both the SAT with subject Tests and ACT enhance my application? Also, would a 36 on the ACT b...

Worth Retaking SAT Without Superscoring?

I've heard that the College Board investigates score improvements on the SAT if they're extreme enough because it raises questions about whether the student cheated. How much would your score have to improve for this to happen? Is there a specific benchmark?
