    I am a college sophomore who took the SAT my junior year in high school and got a 1990 (730 reading, 590 math, 670 writing) and I am going to retake the SAT this October to improve my math score. I just registered for the test with college board and am being asked to choose whether I want to send CGA all my scores or specific scores. Math is the one I am working to improve since my reading score is decent, however I will try my best on the reading section and I suspect that I will get an improved score without studying simply because it is my strength and I have read a lot since age 16! Should I tell the college board to send all my scores or only my math? (They will already have my previous other scores from junior year) I only ask because I fear that if I for some reason do worse on the other two sections since I am not explicitly studying for them like I am for math, that will reflect poorly on me and hurt my admission chances.

    Edit: I just realized of course I could simply wait until I receive my scores and then send any that I improved upon to CGA. Is this acceptable or do they prefer you to send all your scores? Thanks

    CGA superscores, so they only count the highest scores. Trying again won't hurt you.

    Also, you should change your screen name to be anonymous.

    Good luck. You're doing the right things. Keep up with the athletics and community service.

    Thanks!! Also I appreciate your concern, however this is my father's account he created for me and he simply used an alias for the username.
