Wow, that's a pretty nice improvement!
My composite score was 2230 (only a 730 on critical reading, 760 math, and 740 writing - the result of a perfect 80 on the multiple choice, but bombed essay :T). I am still wondering about that 760, though. Was the test made too easy, so they had to make the curve kinda nasty?

I got a 2400, missed 2 reading questions and omitted 1 writing with an 11 essay. I think I got fairly lucky though

Why do I come here? I thought I had a score that might get me into a college, but apparently not :lol:

I took the January SAT, and my math score was lower than expected too (740, 77 on PSAT). However, I hadn't looked at an SAT question since the PSAT so I could have just been out of practice. We'll see when we get the test back.

But my writing was way higher than expected. I did exactly no prep for the writing portion (and I elected to not be in honors English classes) and I still got a 730 (66 on PSAT)

R: 730
M: 740
W: 730

2200/2400
1470/1600

I told myself I wouldn't take it again if I got a 2200 (this was my first time) but I'd like a higher math score...

See, I was actually somewhat surprised by my score breakdown (though I was expecting about the total score I got): my PSAT was a 234, 80 on writing and critical reading, 74 math. So I thought it was strange that my highest was math this time, and that I missed so many in critical reading.

That usually happens with the math section, but it usually isn't that intense. Its usually that one off is a 780, so that must've been a particularly easy test. That or really competitive people took the exam.

My first SAT I missed one math question as well and I got a 790, so I got lucky. The next time I got 4 or 5 off (wooopsies) and got a 700. The curve is rough.

Took my first SAT today.

I'm guessing maybe 1 wrong for math, 1-2 wrong for writing, and maybe 7-8 wrong for critical reading.

So if I bomb the Reading and Essay part... should I try improving and taking it again? So many people around me are just like, nah, just keep your score. (2090) But like.. T.T That's kinda low...

Just got my ACT score back. I got a 35, so I'm pretty happy. Although I somehow bombed the essay...
Also, I got a 2200 on the SAT. I am probably not taking it again in the fall, because I'm fine with that and I don't feel the extra torture to be necessary.
Apparently, I got an 800 on the hardest section (reading), but I got in the 600s on math...
