SAT Score

All the registered students receive a mail regarding the declaration of result once the score report is ready. SAT Scores of the students is the sum of scores they have obtained in the two sections (i.e. Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math) of the test. A separate score is provided for the optional SAT Essay test.    

The sectional scores are calculated by computing the raw scores of the students—the no. of questions correctly answered for each section. The raw scores of the students in each section are then converted to a scaled score of 200 – 800.

This process of conversion of scores adjusts for slight differences in the various versions (on the basis of test difficulty level) of the test (taken on different days) and facilitates in providing consistent score across all the versions of the tests. It is basically done to make sure that no student gets advantage or disadvantage (due to difficulty level of test) of the tests conducted on different days. The scaled scores are the final scores of the students which are reflected on the score reports. There is not any provision for negative marking and hence no marks of the students are deducted for wrong answers or for unanswered questions.

A benchmark (SAT College and Career Readiness Benchmarks) score is also set for both the sections to check the readiness of the students for the college and career. Check the benchmark score details for both the sections given in the table below-
