What is Superscoring?-Santa Clara ACT SAT test prep tutoring

Superscoring is simply combining the the highest scores from each section taken from each test date of either the SAT or ACT. This means that if you scored higher in Math and Reading on one SAT and higher in Writing and Language on the other SAT,  a composite score is created from the Math and Reading on the first exam and the Writing and Language on the other exam. This works the same way for the ACT. However, the ACT composite is an average of scores rather than a sum.

Who Superscores

It is important to understand that the SAT and the ACT do not provide the superscores for you. You may not pick and choose which section scores to send to colleges. The SAT and ACT will provide the scores you choose to send to colleges. If the colleges participate in superscoring, they will consider your highest sections scores and create your superscore, so they will need access to all the scores from each exam date.

Schools that Participate

The SAT provides a comprehensive list of schools that participate in superscoring and score choice. You can access a PDF of schools and their requirements. The ACT is a bit more ambiguous about which schools participate in superscoring. You will need to contact admissions offices to see if you should send all of your ACT scores or only your highest composite score.

Your Best Work

Superscoring only considers your best work, so it can relieve some of the pressure that comes with taking the exam. If you bombed the math section, you have another opportunity to get a higher score, without having to worry about repeating your performance or getting higher scores in the other sections.

Your Responsibility

Remember you are responsible for understanding admissions requirements at the institutions you are applying to. You are also responsible for requesting score reports. The bottom line is if an admissions office uses superscores, send all of your scores from all of your exam dates. Send only your highest exam date score, when only one score will be considered for admissions.

Get Help

Your high school counselors are available to provide resources and answer questions regarding submitting exam scores for admissions. Don’t be afraid to get help when it is unclear which exam score you should submit.
