Do SAT scores expire?

Do you need to have SAT scores from the same year that you apply to college? Or are the scores good for longer? Say, for example, I took the SAT junior fall and was satisfied with my score. Could I submit that score to colleges even though I didn't earn it within the application year?

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 ...

Mechanical engineering with a 600 Math SAT?

I really want to get into a good mechanical engineering program, but I'm concerned because my Math score is only a 600 (lower than both my Reading and Writing scores). I've gotten As in all my math and science classes in high school, so there's no issue on that front. Should I reconsider my major be...

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?

SAT score 150 points lower than predicted?

I got a 1650 on my SAT, and I was expecting to get at least an 1800. I did a fair amount of prep work before the test on my own and with Princeton Review books. Where am I going wrong? How can I make sure I reach my goal next time?

Will my scores be cancelled if I wrote on the SAT answer sheet?

If I have to skip a question on the SAT, I write the number of the question next to the section on the answer sheet to remind myself to come back to it. I forgot to erase a couple of these numbers before I turned in my test. I didn't know before the test that you aren't supposed to make stray marks ...

SAT superscoring - is it worth it for a very small point increase?

I've taken the SAT twice. My first score was a 1520, and my second score was a 1580. My issue is that I actually scored 10 points higher on one section when I got the 1520, so my superscore comes out to a 1590. Is it worth it to send both of these scores to colleges so I have a higher superscore? Or...

Do Colleges Ever Reject Overqualified Applicants?

This may be a ridiculous question, but I'm wondering whether colleges ever reject students whose test scores and GPA are well above their average range? For example, if someone with a 2400 applied to a school where the average SAT score of accepted students was a 1700, could they get rejected? My th...

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

I decided to take an ACT practice test as an experiment and got a 33 without any prep. Now I'm in a dilem...

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). I was most pressed for time on Reading, and I had a hard time understanding the Science section. I didn't have any ti...

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...
