How SAT Scoring Works

On the old SAT, which no one has taken since January 2016, the highest score was 2400. Now, the highest score on this exam is 1600. You earn your score based on your answers in two main sections: mathematics and evidence-based reading and writing.First, the graders calculate your raw score. This is the number of correct answers you gave. Then, the board uses a process called equating to calculate your scaled score.Your scaled score is somewhere between 200 and 800 for each main section. Combine the scaled scores from both sections to get your cumulative score. The board will also give you a percentile score to review.
