    On my application it just indicates composite, verbal and math. I was confused cause it didn't say best scores, but when I called the office they said they wanted your most recent score (and for me wasn't the best). What is the significance of this, most colleges just want good scores, they don't care about when. Maybe I'm crazy, but I just don't think that makes sense. Plus it is most people's first instinct is to place their best scores. Whats going to happen if I just place my recent scores and everybody else superscores because the application isn't specific? advice?

    Your scores should be going directly to MOC. They have a number just like a college. I would do this on the app: Report all your scores with the date taken in parantheses. Then you are covered. You were honest, put what they think they want, and managed to put what you want on there, too.

    You are talking about an MOC, that means they do not superscore, they see the scores of your most recent SAT. Now, put a reality check into the equation. The MOC's want a sealed transcript. In that transcript is not only every course you have ever taken with every grade, and the school point scale, but also all of you SAT/ACT scores and dates, they will see all of the scores, thus, the reason for the most recent.
