2010 Can Pick Best SAT Scores

Youths who take the exam multiple times can choose just the best results. Some people see a reduction in stress, but others say the move will mostly help the affluent because of the test's cost.
High school students seeking to put the best shine on their college applications will soon be able to choose which of their SAT scores to share with admissions officers and which to hide, the College Board said Friday.

The new policy, starting with the class of 2010, will allow students to take the widely used college entrance exam multiple times without admissions officers seeing their less-than-stellar efforts. Now, colleges receive scores of all the times a student attempted the dreaded test, whether the results were spectacular, mediocre or worse. - Los Angeles Times
Now, that's ghey.

  1. Well, you can avoid this problem by doing what I did...
    1) Pay attention in Ms. Tinker's class.
    2) Score a 1970 on the SAT.
    3) Get into your top choice college.
