October SAT Scores Are In!

Arthur’s SAT scores from October 6th posted today and I am happy to report an improvement in his overall score.  He actually improved significantly in all three areas (critical reading, math and writing).  He upped his critical reading score by 40 points, math by 30 points and writing by 50 points.  Although I am pleased; I would certainly like to see a much higher aggregate score.  Nonetheless, these results are definitely good enough for him to attend any college of his choice (his grade point average is really high, according to his latest progress report card).  Colleges look at grade point averages, SAT and/or ACT scores and primarily base their decisions on these factors.

I don’t want to reveal Arthur’s aggregate SAT scores here (he has friends and teachers who read my blog and I don’t want embarrass him).  Besides, he may be telling all of his friends that he scored 2400 points (combined test results from all three 800-point sections), which is a perfect score. I can tell you he did not get a perfect score.

The next SAT exam is scheduled for November 1, 2012.  It’s too late to register for the November 1st exam (registration deadline was October 22, 2012).  However, another is slated for December 1, 2012 – it’s important to register your high school junior or senior prior to November 1, 2012 to avoid late registration fees.  The registration fee is $50.00 and if you’ve already registered and would like to change the testing location you must submit an additional fee of $25.00.  Register today at College Board {dot} com.
