Most students start preparing for the SAT during their class 11 and take the exam during their class 12. SAT doesn’t test logic or abstract reasoning; it tests the skills students learn at school, which are important and will stay with the student for a lifetime.

    Scoring in SAT

    The SAT is divided into two sections - 1. Reading, Writing, and 2. Mathematics. These two sections are scored on a 200-800-point scale, for a maximum total score of 1600.
    SAT subject test scores are measured on a scale of 200 to 800. There are additional sub scores reported on a 20-80 scale. The scores of a student reflect on how he/she compared with other students who took the test. An average SAT score is around 1000. Anything above 1200 is considered a good SAT score. The maximum anyone can score on SAT is the perfect score of 1600. Since you receive scaled scores, you should have some understanding of SAT scaled scores and percentiles.

    SAT Results

    SAT test results are typically released within 4-5 weeks of the test administration and can be viewed online. Students can choose to send their test scores to colleges of their choice. They also have the option to cancel their test score or withhold them from being sent to certain colleges.
