I’m a student from India. I am applying to the top liberal arts colleges in the US, like Carleton, Colgate, Macalaster etc. I just gave my SAT I on June 3rd. This is what i got :
Critical reading : 630
Math : 740
Writing : 580
( MCQ - 58/80)
(essay score - 8/12)
TOTAL : 1950
I’m pretty unhappy with my scores. I really messed up my essay and i’m confident of getting a 10 or an 11 with a little more practice in essay writing. I am also exceptionally strong at Math. I was surprised when i got 740! I was expecting 800!
I feel that I should give it again. I have seen many people who have given it twice but havent substantially improved their scores. In some cases the scores even fell the second time! I want a 2100+ but am I subjecting myself to unnecessary peril? is 1950 enough?
