I got a 1440 the first time i took the SAT, in march.

When i got the score report back, it said that
for those with my math score, 730, the average score change for taking the SAT again was 10 points lower. For my verbal score, 710, the average score change for taking the SAT again was 5 points lower.


How can, and why, is this true?

I was thinking of taking it again in the fall (im a junior) but now im too scared to.

Why would you be scared? There is absolutely no penalty to take the test again and absolutely no "brownie points" for getting a good score on one sitting. Your best individual scores are not erased or averaged down.

Take it again but be sure that you do put in some extra preparation.

PS If you scored 730 on math, you have a very good chance to score higher.

Its Just I've heard that it raises a red flag if your scores go down, thats all. Well, if I do well on SAT II's i think i'll take it again.

Thanx Xiggi

What could also happen is that you may score higher on one section and then it doesn't matter if you score lower on the other b/c you can combine your two highest. Plus you are on CC so my guess is you're an overachiever like the rest of us crazy ppl and will work hard to score higher. ;]
