When you retake DAT how does admissions view old and new scores?

I am retaking the DAT on Monday. How does admissions look at old vs new scores. I know I am going to increase my TS by a lot but have been neglecting PAT and RC because I did so well the first time, mainly by chance (I barely studied those portions). If I do well on science this year but did better on PAT last year will they average my scores or take the better score? Or do they only look at current scores and see if I improved.

So the schools that have "H", the schools will look at higher scores from both DAT?
Like if I get OG-19, GC-22, Bio-17 first time and OG-22, GC-20, Bio-20 on retake, the school will view the scores as OG-22, GC-22, Bio-20?
I was told unlv and une does this. They take the highest scores from each sections from the two test and combine in into one for one super scores.

According to doc toothache, 28 schools do.. and I want to make sure if that really is the case.

i'm pretty sure the H mean the highest score out of all your exam. ex. first exam you score a 19 aa, then you score a 18aa the second exam. they will consider your 19aa instead of the recent 18aa since the the first one is higher. they do not take each subsection to make one super score. i only know of two schools that does this, unlv and une.
