Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a critical standardized test that the US and other countries use for admissions to colleges and universities. The exam consists of three compulsory sections: Maths, Reading, and Writing. You are assessed based on your performance in these sections. Depending on your SAT score, international institutions determine your eligibility for admission.

SAT Score

SAT score, also known as your total score, ranges from 400 to 1600. This score is simultaneously represented by percentile, providing valuable context regarding your performance relative to other students. The SAT Score comprises the three section scores (Reading, Writing, and Maths). However, the Reading and Writing tests are consolidated into a single section: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW). The Maths section score contributes to the total score separately.

SAT Score Calculation

Your SAT score calculation involves converting your raw scores (the number of correct and incorrect answers) into scaled scores and further into your total SAT scores. Here's how the SAT score calculation works:

  1. Raw Score Calculation: It starts by determining your raw scores for both the EBRW and Mathematics sections. You gain one point for each correct answer, while a fraction of a point is deducted for each incorrect answer. No points are deducted for unanswered questions.
  2. Scaled Score Conversion: The raw scores are then converted into scaled scores ranging from 200 to 800 points for each section.
  3. Total SAT Score: Finally, your total SAT score is calculated by adding up your scaled scores for EBRW and Mathematics. This results in a total score ranging from 400 to 1600.
