SAT percentile chartSee How Your SAT Scores Compare to Other Test-Takers

 

The College Board recently released the percentiles for the new SAT, giving students a better idea of how they compare to other test-takers now that the SAT has adopted a new scoring scale.

For students taking the new SAT, the 1600-point scale has been hard to grasp, and many wonder how “good” their new score is on the new scoring scale. These percentiles can help students see how their scores stack up and where they fall in comparison to other test-takers.

In addition to the new SAT percentiles, the College Board also released the SAT score conversion chart, which allows students to see how their old scores translate into the new 1600-point scale and vice-versa.

Below is the SAT percentile chart for the total scores. To see the percentile charts for individual sections, click here.
