    so i was doing some research, and I read that you have to have a math SAT score of 570 in order to get a candidate number. Is this true? Because i recently got a 530 on my math SAT and i am retaking it in late January and studying really hard to improve, but I am applying for NASS before i would get my scores back. I am very concerned; I am a good student with very good grades; I do not know why i scored so low on the math portion of the SAT.

    I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but the SAT is changing, and the January one is the first time that the new one will be administered. So what you may be studying right now might not be what's on the new SAT. There are study guides/practice booklets for the new SAT and if you want to take the January SAT it might be a good idea to get the new study guides/practice booklets.

    Also, the deadline to apply for NASS last year was the end of March, so unless they change things this year, you should be able to get your scores back from the January SAT in time to use them to apply for NASS.

    The January test is still the old test. The first test that will be the new SAT is in March.

    Hopeful, as everyone always says, try taking the ACT, the SAT just may not agree with you.
