The College Board, the institution that administers the SAT, has a new policy on reporting your scores called Score Choice. Score Choice lets you choose the score you want colleges to see. That means if you take the SAT twice and your second score is higher, that's the only one the college you apply to will be able to see.
However, some schools choose not to participate in Score Choice so these schools can see all of your SAT scores. Make sure to check the policy of the university you're applying
