I was just wondering what everyone got on their SATs?

Most colleges in the midwest prefer the ACT test, so that's what I took.

I scored a 29 on it the first time (second time was a 28 - go figure). Not sure how that compares to SAT scores.

ACT as well. I got a 32 first try, 29 on second. :lol: Managed to get an 11 on the writing the second time (10 first time), even though my essay was utter garbage that degenerated into an anti-Communist rant for absolutely no reason at all barring extreme tiredness. :mrgreen:

I just got 840 out of 900 on both the A+ certification tests... :? Does that count?

(Minimum passing score was 600 on one and 700 on the other.)

Nice! Any time is a good time for an anti-Communist rant - did you bring up Orwell?

They must have changed it since I took it - there wasn't an essay portion for us. Is it still scored based on 36 points?

I took the SATs for the first time in December.

Critical Reading-640
Math-640
Writing-490

This was without studying an ounce. I had no idea what they were looking for in the essay, so I screwed that up pretty bad, as you can see. Writing is actually one of my best subjects. Next time I take it, I'm going to study a little bit, and I'll do a practice essay or two. I'm aiming for 700s across the board. 2100 doesn't seem like a reach for me. :lol: Am I being cocky?

Yeah, it's still based on 36 (I have a friend who managed a 36! :shock: ). The writing score is out of 12, and integrated into the English score.

The writing portion is optional, too (I didn't take it).

I got a 33 on the ACT, first try. Its the lowest 33 you can get, the average of my scores is 32.5, so I would have had to raise the average a whole point to score higher, so I just kept it. It was the English portion that drug me down, only a 27, the others were a 35 and 2 34's. A kid at my school got a 35, and I know several others that got 34.

I took the ACT in seventh grade. I can't remember what my scores were, but I got around 50th percentile overall. I'll be taking it again next year. And I get to take the AP test this year, next year, and the year after that Image

I got a 36 on the ACT. Doesn't do much good when I graduated with something like a 1.93, though. I kinda had this thing about not going to class or doing homework.

I often get low grades because of the homework.

I haven't taken mine yet, but I hope I do well. I did decent on the PSAT (like a 200) but my Reading sucks compared to my Math and Writing scores. I always end up getting like 10 points less on Reading. Like I got 70s Math and Writing, but a 60 on Reading. Makes me rage! Darn vocabulary questions! :evil: haha


Off topic a bit, but when do you guys think I should take my SAT? May or June?
