how to score on sat

The SAT is scored out of 1600. Sub scores and cross-section scores help you evaluate your performance.

  • Your total score is your overall score and is a combination of your section scores. The highest composite score for the SAT is 800+800, or 1600. The average score is 1000.
  • Your section scores are the individual scores for the two main sections of the SAT: 
  • reading/writing 
  •  Math. 

Each of these sections is scored out of 800, and they are added together to get your overall score.

  • The essay is optional and will not be factored into your overall SAT score. The essay scores will be shown separately on the report.
  • Your essay, if you choose to attempt it will be scored in three measures: Reading, Analysis and Writing.
