Hey everyone, just wanted some advice on what to do as I want to drop my applications asap and need some advice on what to do. I was looking for some help from people who have already been accepted / know how schools interpret scores as it'd help me decide whether or not I should re-take.

I took the OAT last year and got these results

Bio 290
QR 330
RC 330
Physics 360
Gchem 340
Ochem 320

AA - 330
TS - 330

My GPA is 3.0 with an increasing trend in year 3 and 4.

My oat is schedule next week but I am not confident that I can outscore my previous OAT mark. However, I am scared what the 290 means in terms of a viable test result so my question is should I retake my OAT or apply with my 330 score and 3.0 GPA and expect to be accepted?

Retaking it won't hurt you, just do practice tests (Kaplan) or CourseSaver, where I got my practice from.
Does anyone know if schools look at your highest OAT score or the average of all your scores?

Waterloo looks at highest, and I'm 99% sure everyone else looks at highest too, although I wouldn't put it against them that they would also see your other scores even though it won't actually be used for scoring.
