SAT Scores/Results 2022: Score Range, SAT Score Calculator & Raw Score Conversion

SAT Results


Understanding SAT Scores may be difficult for applicants. The whole SAT test is graded on a range of 400-1600, but students in India are used to receiving marks in percentiles. That is why a data table for evaluating SAT and Subject Test scores are required. We have included a table below that explains SAT Score and Percentile. Aside from that, we have covered every element of SAT Results and SAT Scores in this text.

How to Check SAT Results?


The SAT score report is available to candidates through their College Board profile.

How to Check Your SAT Scores

Step 1: Go to the College Board's website.

Step 2: Log in using your ID and password.

Step 3: Navigate to My Organiser and then to SAT Scores.

Step 4: Navigate to Access My Scores and input your login and password.

Step 5: Navigate to My Test Scores.

Step 6: Your SAT results will be shown on the screen.

Candidates can use Score Choice to transmit their score reports to colleges.

SAT Scores


  • The Total Score: The Total Score, as the name implies, is the total of the two Section Scores, and it runs from 400 to 1600.
  • Sectional Score: The sectional score varies from 200 to 800 and is based on the candidate's performance on the Math Section and the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Sections.
  • Subscore (marks scored in each type of question): Reading, Writing and Language, and Math Sections all have multiple point subscores ranging from 1 to 15. The primary goal of Subscores is to give extra insight into the students' performance.
  • Essay score (if applicable): Candidates who took the SAT with the essay will see their essay reading (2-8 points), writing (2-8 points), and analysis (2-8 points) scores posted under the Essay Details tab.
  • Student’s percentile: The student's percentile score indicates how well the student fared on the SAT exam in comparison to other test-takers.

What is a Good SAT Score


A typical SAT score is about 1000. A SAT score of 1200 or more is considered good. The perfect score on the SAT is 1600, which anyone may get. Because you will be given scaled scores, you should be familiar with SAT scaled scores and percentiles.

What is an Average SAT Score?


According to the College Board's Annual Report, the average Sat Score is 1051, with a score of 528 on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing portion and a score of 523 on the Math component.

SAT Score Calculator


The College Board translates your raw score for a section — the number of questions you answered correctly in that section — into the "scaled score" for that part using a conversion table specific to each test to determine your SAT score. The scaled scores are then added together to determine your overall SAT score.

The sum of the reading, writing, and math scores determines the total score. However, when calculating, Reading and Writing are merged to form Evidence-based Reading and Writing. The Math section's score, as well as the Evidence-based section's score, follow separate scoring procedures.

The only common factors in the scoring of these 2 sections are:

  • Each part receives a raw score depending on the number of right answers provided.
  • Each question in the section is worth one point.
  • There is no negative indication.

SAT Score Chart


The SAT has three mandatory sections: reading, writing, language, and math. A raw score is assigned to each part initially. It should be noted that the raw SAT score is determined based on the number of correct answers provided.

To learn more about the potential raw points in each segment, we must first determine the number of questions in each section:

Sections
Number of Question and Possible Raw Point (maximum)
Reading
52
Writing and Language
44
Math
58


Along with these three portions, there is an optional essay section, however, the SAT essay score does not factor into the final SAT score. As a result, we're not going to talk about it here. The essay, on the other hand, has a score range of 2-8.

What is SAT Raw Score?


The SAT raw score is based on the number of right answers given, and it is important to note that each SAT question is worth one point, and there is no negative grading.

The SAT raw scoring method is straightforward: if a candidate successfully answers 40 questions in any part, the raw point for that section is 40.

Each section's raw score is translated into scaled scores to give the total SAT score, which ranges from 400 to 1600. These raw scores are scaled using the SAT score conversion table. The total of these values yields the overall SAT score. However, before proceeding to the SAT raw score to scaled score conversion chart, it is necessary to first comprehend scaled scores.

What is SAT Scaled Score?


Each section's scaled SAT score range is 200-800. Each component refers to math and evidence-based reading and writing, with a total score range of 400-1600. Each part of the SAT has its own rule for converting the raw score to the scaled score.

The SAT score calculator chart for the Math, Reading and Writing sections might change — the raw math score is instantly turned into a scaled score in the range of 200-800.

SAT Raw Score Conversion


The College Board translates your raw score for a section — the number of questions you answered correctly in that section — into the "scaled score" for that part using a conversion table specific to each test to determine your SAT score. The scaled scores are then added together to determine your overall SAT score.

Because each SAT exam is different, the College Board translates your raw score into a scaled score using a conversion table unique to that test. They scale the scores to match the test's complexity. On a difficult test, pupils may be able to miss one or two questions and still receive an 800. On a simpler test, though, missing only one question may reduce your score to a 790 or 780.

The College Board's Scoring Your Practice Test material includes directions on how to compute your section scores, as well as a sample conversion chart.

The raw results from SAT subject tests are also translated into scaled scores based on the number of right questions. The following SAT score chart includes a SAT physics score chart as well as a SAT biology score chart for both ecological biology and molecular biology:
