The SAT is a high school standardized test considered by most of the colleges and universities in the process of admission. The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

The SAT is a standardized test that assesses a student’s skills in four core areas: Reading, Writing & Language, Math, and Essay (optional).

 SAT Scoring System

  • Test/Subject Score: There are 4 subjects’ scaled score.
  • Section/Grouped Score: EBRW- Evidence Based Reading and Writing (Reading + Writing & Language) and Math Composite (Math).
  • SAT Total Score: {(Reading Scale Score + Writing & Language Scale Score) *10 + Math*20} or (EBRW + Math) Section Scores.

* If you take the SAT with essay, your essay will not factor into the Total or Section scores.
