What is going on? I have been reading confusing posts. I thought you can take the SATIs as many times as you wish and send your best score. You can take it as many times a year it is offered until you apply right?..if you are willing to spend the money.. Please someone help. And what about the SATIIs and the ACT.

u can take em as many times as u want. Keep in mind, however, that colleges will not be very happy if u take a test 10 times... 3 times is a typical limit.

BTW, you can take the ACT a thousand times, since when u report a score, the colleges won't know that u took it more than once, unless they have your score reports from other tests. On the SAT, ALL of your test scores are sent.

I think it depends on your scores. Although colleges don't like to see you take it more than 2 or 3 times, I think it would still be to your advantage if you take it if you improve a lot. I made a 1430 on my 3rd time and a 1550 on my 4th time, and I think that will help me rather than hurt me.

my teachers tell me 4 times is good 5 at the max....colleges see that your trying to improve each year so if yout ake it each year of high school for 4 years then thats 4 times so thres nothing wrong with taking it 4 times. Alos the nice thing is you can pair your highest lets say i make an 800 on one math and then 2 tests later i make a 800 verbal I have 1600!!!
