Advantage Testing SAT Q&A

How is the SAT scored?

The maximum score on the SAT is 1600. You will receive two main scores, each on a scale from 200 to 800, in two separate categories: (1) Math and (2) Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (commonly known as “Verbal”).

You will also receive two Cross-Test Scores, scaled from 10–40, in Analysis in Science and Analysis in History/Social Studies. Additionally, the SAT records seven “Subscores,” scaled from 1–15, in the following topics: Words in Context, Command of Evidence, Expression of Ideas, Standard English Conventions, Heart of Algebra, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Passport to Advanced Math. These subscores may offer some insight into determining your areas of relative strength and weakness, but they are rarely considered independently in college admissions.
