Will I get a letter from ETS saying that I cheated if i get a 1600 on this Saturday's SAT, after screwing up on October's PSAT with a 1270? I've heard of that happening to people so I was just wondering how big of a leap do you need before they get suspicious?
Just wondering because i just got a 1600 on a practice test today. I was really happy, but now I'm just thinking of how much it would suck to get that letter in the mail...

if they accuse you, make them prove it...

I believe they might get suspicious if you go up 250 points in either area or 350 points overall, but it is not enough (by itself) for them to do anything about it. Don't quote me on anything tho, I'm not positive that's the case, but someone once told me it was. You will probably be fine since you didn't go up 350 points overall.

Not positive but i dont htink they even look at your past scores.. you start fresh with your first satI

Mattymatt is right, I donít think they factor PSAT into the "cheating logarithm" for the SATI.
Even if they did, 330 points improvement over 7 months from a preliminary test does not seem unreasonable at all.

Oh right, I didn't see that it was a PSAT and not an SAT you took in October. I have no idea whether they look at the PSAT or now, so Mattymatt is probably right that they don't.

Yeah, the PSAT is the time many students are first introduced to the test whereas the SAT 1 is often after a student has done quite a bit of prepping. They won't count your PSAT scores. Also, I have heard ETS gives up really easy when trying to accuse people of cheating. The reason for that being they don't HAVE a legal case! So you don't have to worry about being arbitrarily sued, just get the best score possible.

Thanks guys, that really makes me feel a lot better, you're probably right.
