##### Is IB Math AI really difficult?

Surely students who begin to research the SAT will ask the question: “How will my number of true and false sentences convert to a scale of 200 – 800?”. Through this article, SSAT will help you understand the SAT scoring system in each section. In addition to that, we will also help you understand the process of score conversion in SAT.

### SAT scoring system

The SAT has two large sections — Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Math. Students can earn a scaled score of 200 to 800 points per section. This means the total score of the SAT is 1600 points

 # of Scores Score Type Description Score Range Total score Sum of the two-section scores 400-1600 2 Section scores Evidence-based Reading and Writing + Math 200-800 3 Test scores Reading, Writing and Language, and Math 10-40 3 SAT Essay scores Reading, Analysis, and Writing 2 – 8 2 Cross-test scores Analysis in History/Social Studies and Analysis in Science. These scores are based on selected questions in all three sections. 10-40 7 Subscores From Evidence-based Reading and Writing: Command of Evidence, Words in Context, Expression of Ideas, and Standard English Conventions. From Math: Heart of Algebra, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Passport to Advanced Math. 1-15

From the table above you can see that:

• The Subscores section will show you how well you did on the test in different subjects, to give more clarity on your strengths and weaknesses. This section will be scored on a scale of 1 – 4 for each section.
• The cross-test will be on a scale of 10 – 40. Unlike the EBRW, you don’t combine these two scores and multiply them to get a final score on a scale between 200 and 800.
• The Essay is optional and will not be counted towards your overall SAT score. Essay scores will be displayed separately on the score report.
• The score of the Essay will be calculated on a scale of 2-8 .

### SAT score conversion

For SAT scores, there are two types of scores that you need to understand: Raw Scores and Scaled Scores.

• The Raw Score is the score you get from the correct answers. The raw score will not be deducted if the student makes a mistake or skips a sentence.
• The scaled score is the score converted from Raw score to a scale of 200 – 800 according to each test section.

For a better understanding of the SAT score conversion process, take a look at the following conversion table:

 Raw Score Math Score EBRW Score 1 200 200 2 200 200 3 210 210 4 230 220 5 240 230 6 260 240 7 280 250 8 290 250 9 310 260 10 320 270 11 330 270 12 340 280 13 360 290 14 370 290 15 380 300 16 390 300 17 410 310 18 420 310 19 430 320 20 450 320 21 460 330 22 470 330 23 480 340 24 480 340 25 490 350 26 500 350 27 510 360 28 520 360 29 520 370 30 530 380 31 540 380 32 550 390 33 560 390 34 560 400 35 570 400 36 580 410 37 590 410 38 600 420 39 600 420 40 610 430 41 620 430 42 630 440 43 640 450 44 650 450 45 660 460 46 670 470 47 670 470 48 680 480 49 690 480 50 700 490 51 710 500 52 730 500 53 740 500 54 750 500 55 760 500 56 780 510 57 790 520 58 800 530 59 530 60 540 61 550 62 560 63 560 64 570 65 580 66 590 67 590 68 600 69 610 70 610 71 620 72 630 73 630 74 640 75 650 76 650 77 660 78 660 79 670 80 680 81 680 82 690 83 700 84 700 85 710 86 720 87 720 88 730 89 740 90 740 91 750 92 760 93 770 94 780 95 790 96 800
