How are SAT scores calculated?

Candidates receiving the SAT score is the sum of your reading, writing and math scores. The essay section score is calculated separately. To calculate the section-wise score, the SAT Scoring Team collects the data of raw scores, i.e.) the number of correct answers in each section, and convert them to a scaled score of 200 to 800.

What is Percentile in SAT Scores?

Candidates’ percentile rank in the SAT exam scores represents the percentage of students/candidates whose SAT score is either equal or lower than their score. For instance, if a student’s SAT score is 80th percentile, 80% of the students who took the SAT exam have achieved that score range or below.
