SAT 'super scoring' is when a university takes the highest scores from each section of the SAT (Critical Reading, Writing, and Math). For example, if a student took the SAT several times and had a high score on the CR section of 700, a high score of 550 on math, and a high score of 620 on writing, the university would add those three scores together to make a 'super score' of 1870. Many students will take the SAT multiple times to achieve a super score. Be sure to check with the university's admissions department prior to applying to see if they accept a super score.
