Question description

Hey guys, on this just released SAT, i got a 650 on CR, 780 on Math , and a 640 on Writing.

My essay score got an 8. A score I had gotten on my last two tests. The problem is, my last two tests, I did not even think the essay was counted into the total score, just a subscore that colleges didn't look at, so I didn't prepare, and I hardly tried. As a result, my first two eesays were barely 3 paragraphs, and an unorganized mess with terrible evidence. Somehow they got 8's. This last essay I wrote, was 4 solid paragraphs, used references to novels with literary merit, and seemed very effective. How then, did I deserve an 8? I thought, maybe I messed up something in the format? Went off topic? Not really likely.

So I just talked to my friends, who are all very smart, top 10 in the class. They all had the same problem!! Their essay scores and coincidentally, their writing scores were much lower than previous years.

Why does this happen?

I was thinking about re-take the SAT at nov. 6th. Any ideas and suggestions for me?
