How to Figure a Composite SAT Score From The Separate Scores You Get

The SAT, or Scholastic Aptitude Test (refer to for detail) is a standardized test used in the college admissions process. SET required by most colleges as part of a student’s application and can be a challenging task. SET consists of three sections: Math, verbal and writing. Each section is worth 800 points, adds up to 2400 possible points. The test can be taken as many times as necessary to achieve the score you want.

1. Assemble SAT scores that you have received from the College Board, the examination Board that manages the test.

2. Add the three overall score for each section to find the composite score. The three sections–math, writing and verbal—each scored out of 800, for a possible total of 2400 points. For example, if your score was 570 of 600 on verbal and math, a 600 on the writing, your composite score would be a 1770.

3. Compare your composite SAT scores. If your score is lower than you’d like, consider taking the SAT again.
