The two sections, Evidence-Based Reading (divided into Reading, and Writing and Language) and Math (divided into two sections, one using a calculator and the other without a calculator) are each awarded between 200 and 800 points, adding up to your total overall score, with 1600 as the highest SAT score and the SAT score range between 4.
There is an optional essay which is scored separately, and does not factor into the overall score. Your answer sheet is scanned, and your raw score is calculated for each section.
If you have created a College Board account, you are able to receive your online score report, by logging into your account.
If you haven’t created an account and registered for the SAT by mail, you will receive your report by mail.
You can also get your report by phone, but there is a fee.
Most colleges require at least one entrance exam, and want an official score report sent directly from the test administrator.
Updated: December 31, 2018 The SAT, or Scholastic Assessment Test, is one of two tests that are almost universally accepted and often required for admission to colleges and universities around the world. There are a few test-optional schools or test-blind schools, but these are the exception, not the rule.
Most schools demand to see either your SAT or ACT scores, so you will want to take one or the other in order to keep your options open.
You will receive a score based on three dimensions: Each of these sections will be awarded between 2 and 8 points.
The score is the sum of both of the readers’ 1 – 4 ratings in each dimension.
