You should certainly address this significant jump -- and the fact that you took the first test with next to no preparation is important to explain this difference.
All schools will see all scores. Some score reports will raise questions more than others (like "How did s/he go from a 154 to a 175??? Oh, they took the first test blind.") but all schools will see all scores.
But the truth is that 100% of the time, the school will report the highest score to the ABA. Every. Single. Time. No exceptions. Ever.
and CONGRATS on that score!!
