SAT Score Choice - How Score Choice™ Works
Select which scores you want to send to your score recipients

Score Choice gives you the option to choose which scores (by test date for the SAT and by individual test for SAT Subject Tests™) you send to colleges _ in accordance with an institution's stated score-use practice. If you decide not to use Score Choice, all of your scores will be sent to your recipients. You should still feel comfortable sending all scores, since most colleges consider a student's best score.

See the CollegeBoard website for additional information - www.collegeboard.com

ACT INFORMATION
Many colleges accept the ACT as an alternative to the SAT. The multiple-choice ACT test covers English, mathematics, reading and science. The Writing test is optional and measures skill in planning and writing a short essay.
