With new redesign SAT in 2016, College Board has also come up with new score reporting. Report now gives better insight of students’ scores, National Level Percentile, Benchmark and it has also introduced additional groups EBRW and Math Composite. The old SAT was scored on a 2400 point scale, and the new SAT is scored on a 1600 point scale. So, how does your score get calculated? Steps to calculating your final SAT score.

## I: Determine Your Raw Scores for the New 2016 SAT:

• For every question you answer correctly on the SAT, you obtain one point.
• There is no penalty for guessing nor skipping.
• The maximum possible raw score depends on the total number of questions asked.
• For example, for the Reading Test, there are 52 questions, so the maximum raw score is 52. If you answered all 52 questions correctly, you would have a raw score of 52. For Math, there are 58 questions. For Writing, there are 44 multiple-choice questions.

## II: Total Score Calculation:

• First the EBRW is calculated and converted in the score range of 200 – 800 and then Math is calculated and converted in the range of 200 – 800.
• SAT Total score (400 – 1600) is sum of EBRW (200- 800) and Math (200 – 800).

## III: Conversion of Score for EBRW and Math Composite:

• EBRW = [ Reading (10 – 40) + Writing (10 – 40)] * 10
• Math Composite = Math (10 – 40) * 20
• How it’s calculated?
• EBRW( 200 – 800) = ( 32 + 30) * 10 = 620
• Math Composite(200 – 800) = ( 32 ) * 20 = 640
• Total Score (400 – 1600) = 620 + 640 = 1260
