What is a Good SAT Score?

April 21, 2017

 

 

Well, a good SAT score depends on the colleges you are considering. A 1200 on the SAT may be an asset to your application for one university but a liability on your application for another school. 

 

Average SAT Scores

The SAT was redesigned in March 2016, and is now scored on a 400–1600 point scale. Here are the average EBRW and SAT math scores for a typical college-bound junior or senior.

If you are close to the average, you will likely be accepted into a variety of colleges and universities, but may not be considered at more selective schools. Above average scores improve your chances. A score that is well below average is considered low at just about any four-year school

 

 

Good SAT Scores for YOUR Goals

Unless you pulled a perfect 1600, you can always improve your SAT score. While colleges consider a lot of factors when they make admissions decisions, standardized test scores are an important piece of your college application. Higher scores mean more options for you. A good SAT score can also help you snag additional merit scholarship money. Even if your dream college is test optional, or you have already been accepted to a college, you may want to consider taking the test again (say, in December or January of senior year) for scholarship applications.
