No. You still can get above 700...but beware of predicting how many you get wrong, because that's usually not very accurate.

Anyway, yes, if you got 0 wrong and 10 blank you could still have gotten an 800; therefore it seems reasonable to believe you could have left 12 blank and gotten another 3-6 wrong and still have a solid chance at a 700.

Adcoms always tell you at info sessions that they take your three highest SAT II scores, so if you blow this one just take it again or take a different test at a later date.

humm...if u got only 3 wrong I think 700 is still a "reachable" score...I do not know tho...
33-34 p --- 700

My opinion is that don't cancel. Just retake it once you get your score if you need to. Most schools will take the higher of the two sittings.
