Most colleges will Superscore the SAT, which means they will take the highest of all the scores you submit. For example: You take the SAT in March and get a Critical Reading (CR) score of 550, Math (M) score of 650, and Writing (WR) score of 540. You then take it in May and get CR600, M620, and WR550.

Most 11th grade students are incredibly busy and SAT Prep work is difficult to squeeze in.

How many times can you retake the SAT?

Students can take the SAT as many times as they want. We recommend that they take it at least twice—in the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year. Most students get a higher score the second time, and most colleges consider a student’s highest SAT score when making admission decisions.
