If you’re trying to figure out what your Old SAT score converts to in the New SAT scale (or vice versa), we’ve got you covered! Many of our readers have expressed concern over the conversion, and what this means for their chances of college admissions, so we put together a simple tool to help you compare!
The math scores of the Old SAT and the New SAT are the same – a simple 200-800 scale. However, the Old SAT’s Writing and Reading Comprehension sections, which both used to be scored out of 800 points, are now rolling up into a single section worth 800 points in total (with a Writing+Language and Reading section making up 400 points each). This tool will allow you to see your new totals in the simplest way possible.
