need some help about my SAT score

I figured I'd post here instead of getting my thread moved of of SS/FG forum. Long story short, I took my SAT's four years ago and then went into the Navy. Well now I am getting out and I need my scores for college and I can't find them anywhere. I tried the SAT site online and didn't get jack.....anyone know where I might be able to track them down?

Ask the SAT board, yourself. They'll be able to put you on the right track. It will probably require some kind of verification of your identity, and probably a processing fee. Then they'll probably send you your information. But only they will be able to tell you for sure.

Also, there might be some kind of time limit on how long those tests are valid. They do change them from time to time. You should probably* ask them about that, too.




*Four "probably"s is probably** my highest score, yet!
**Five!

Colleges will probably want the new SAT with thr writing section tacked on so I imagine that you'll have to retake them.

Wouldn't that be like, unfair to the other people?
A 2400 (equiv to the previous 1600) would be a no brainer now.

was this done so they could pass more people who could not enunciate, pronounce, formulate sentences that went beyond SVA or can't extract context?

No. The thinking was that there should be an assessment of writing ability. Written communication skills are a valid predicter of success in college.

Well, usually the writing part is very general and not hard at all, but the grading is impossible. Every little grammatical error that normally would be overlooked in a regular class, is corrected and points are taken off. Also structure is key and heavily looked on, so I'm told. Its about the same as before, if not harder.

I'd like to believe that but whenever changes are made to the grading or scoring system of anything it almost always seems to be the benefit to those who were not able to pass it or get good scores.
