Superscoring is when colleges consider your highest section scores across all the dates you took the SAT or ACT. Rather than confining your scores to one particular date, these schools will take your highest section scores, forming the highest possible composite score.

Example of Superscoring:

February 2018: English 27, Math 28, Reading 28, Science 28—Composite 27

April 2018: English 27, Math 30, Reading 31, Science 26—Composite 29

July 2018: English 29, Math 27, Reading 29, Science 30—Composite 29

If a student were to submit all three scores, the institutions below would pull the highest subtest scores from each date:

English 29, Math 30, Reading 31, Science 30 – a Composite score of 30

#– indicates that college will super-duper score, combining best subscores from BOTH SAT AND ACT submitted (we really love these schools)
