    Host: Can I take my scores back if I feel I don't do well on a test?

    Laura Rheinauer: You can take your scores back if you don't think you did well on a test but have a few warnings for you. The first warning is you can only do it on the day of a test. So you can't be sitting a week later and think, "you know what, I don't think I did so well. Let's take that away.

    " You have to do it at the day of the test. You are going to have to go see the proctor and request; an official request to cancel scores form. Fill that out the day of the test and give it back to the proctor before you leave. Once that's done; it's done. You can't change your mind. All scores from that day are going to be cancelled. No scores will be reported. You can't pick and choose. I only want my reading score to go or I only want my writing score to be sent. I strongly encourage you to only cancel scores in dire circumstances, like if you got ill during testing. Always keep in mind too that the fees are nonrefundable. So you won't get your money back.
