Also he has a learning disability which impacts his math score. Is the fact that his math score is significantly lower than his other scores a cause for concern? Should he address it in his application?
Maybe this info will help some other parents or kids taking the SAT. I am no expert, and my son 8767 s writing did NOT improve in 7 months time. He just gave the reviewers what they wanted in a format to allow them to check boxes.
Please ignore my original replay, as I misread your comment entirely. The Spanish Subject Test like the other foreign language exams is challenging enough for students to do well on even with 8 full years of high school language. I would definitely recommend that students take the additional 7 months and wait for the June date. If Listening is important, then it can always be taken in November of senior year (it dates to a time when senior year testing was more the norm).
Do you think the ACT Board will re-examine the inadequacies of the writing score and re-scale so it makes more sense? My daughter rec 8767 d a 77 but it was the 95th percentile. Low number for high percentile. She also rec 8767 d 65s in each of the 9 domains.
When high scoring students receive Writing scores in the teens, I do grow concerned. In informal discussions with admissions officers, many fully admit that they don 8767 t put much weight on Writing. When asked if they might view a 65 as a red flag, they admit 8775 yes, that would raise eyebrows. 8776 Your son did very well, and I 8767 d hate to see him disadvantaged by the Writing score. I would recommend retesting if his schedule allows.
No, I don 8767 t see any reason to send scores 6 or 7 (except where a college requires all scores). In theory, score #7 provides a slightly higher R, but it would not change his overall composite of 85 even at schools that superscore. There are problems with the other scores (the 78 Science on #7 and the lack on an essay on #6) that make me think your son should keep it simple.
I am hoping to apply Early Decision to Columbia this fall. I have taken the ACT and recieved a 89 composite but I got a 76 on the writing. I 8767 m not sure how this is possible as I received a 86 on the English section, so I obviously understand language arts. Anyways, should I retake the test? I know the percentiles are shifted on the writing but it seems like a 76 would be a red flag. Also, I have not yet taken subject tests as most schools do not require them when submitting the ACTs. Should I plan on taking those too? Would it be detrimental to my application if I have not taken them? Thank you so much for your help! This list is so useful!
I 8767 m in the same boat as Arvind. My school required me to take the New SAT in March without the essay. I took the New SAT again in May with the essay. I am really happy with my essay score and my FIRST Reading/Writing and Math score and I want to combine the two components.
Wiccans and other modern-day Neopagans continue to celebrate the Spring Equinox as one of their 8 yearly Sabbats (holy days of celebration). Near the Mediterranean, this is a time of sprouting of the summer's crop farther north, it is the time for seeding. Their rituals at the Spring Equinox are related primarily to the fertility of the crops and to the balance of the day and night times. In those places where Wiccans can safely celebrate the Sabbat out of doors without threat of religious persecution, they often incorporate a bonfire into their rituals, jumping over the dying embers is believed to assure fertility of people and crops.

What most people call spring relies on the astronomical definition of the word. Spring is generally considered the period between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Defined by the angle of Earth s tilt toward the sun, astronomical spring relies on equinoxes and solstices to define it.
College Board and ACT maintain lists of essay policies, but students should not depend upon them. College Board 8767 s is new and very incomplete. ACT 8767 s is old and stale (. includes no information on recent drops). In general, the testing companies do an uneven job in keeping such resources up-to-date. Compass goes directly to the colleges for the latest information. The following table of 865 popular colleges provides a wide range of institutions and policies. In general, we find that less competitive colleges are less likely to require either essay.
Mayday celebrations are common around Europe. The Maypole dance is a popular folk festival, particularly in parts of Germany and the United Kingdom. The pole symbolizes sacred trees, the world axis, the phallus, growth and regeneration, said De Rossi.
