    "American education system
    Oxford will accept both the old-system and the redesigned SAT. Students sitting the redesigned SAT will need to achieve a total score of 1,470 (out of 1,600). We do not require the optional essay in the redesigned SAT. Any candidates with a test date prior to, or including, January 2016 will be expected to achieve the SAT Reasoning Test with at least 1,400 in Critical Reading and Mathematics and also 700 or more in Writing, giving a combined score of at least 2,100 (out of 2,400)."

    Is this the super scored amount or are individual tests with 700 on W and 1400 on M and R needed?

    They say this about superscoring but i'm not sure it answers the question:

    "Candidates are asked to enter all their scores for any tests taken when they complete their UCAS application, showing the relevant dates for each. This gives tutors a complete picture of the candidates’ academic record, rather than just the ‘superscore’ of best results for the different sections of any test taken on multiple occasions."

    Tagging BrasenoseAdm to see if they can help with this.

    Steppenwolf123 Are you really worried about the criteria for the old SAT? Are those the scores you're going to use if you're applying this fall? If not, then the real question is if they will superscore on the new SAT to get you to the required 1470.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
