When taking the SAT, it's important to know about the concept of "superscoring." This means that you can choose to submit your highest section scores from multiple test dates, which can lead to a higher overall score. This is an excellent option for students who may have struggled with certain sections on one test date but excelled on another. By submitting your best scores from each section across multiple test dates, you can create a superscore that reflects your true abilities.
As the graphic above depicts, a top SAT score puts students in the top 10% of all test takers with a combined score range of 1360-1600, consisting of a Math score of 690-800 and a Reading and Writing Score of 670-800. A competitive score of 1210-1340 puts students in the top 25% of all test takers, consisting of a Math score of 600-680 and a Reading and Writing score of 610-660. An above-average score of 1070-1190 puts students in the top half of test takers but won’t be as advantageous when applying to highly competitive programs, with a Math score of 530-590 and a Reading and Writing score of 540-660. A below-average score of 400-1050, consisting of a Math Score of 200-520 and a Reading and Writing Score of 200-530, puts students below average compared to the testing population. Still, the combined score may be enough to get into various college programs.
