SAT – Scoring

 

The SAT is scored on a 1600 point scale. This is further broken up into the Math and the Reading/Writing sections, where each section is awarded between 200 and 800 points each.

The optional essay doesn’t impact your overall score as it is evaluated separately. Also, now there is no penalty for wrong answers, so your raw score is the sum of the number of questions you answer correctly. Raw scores are converted to scaled scores, which are used to determine percentile ranks. The percentile indicates how well you did, compared to other students who also took the SAT.

For example, if you score in the 95th percentile, you did better than 95% of other students.

SAT Essay

The SAT essay is not mandatory.

Not all colleges require the essay score. You don’t have to take the SAT with optional Essay, but if you do, you will be able to apply to colleges that recommend or require it.  The SAT Essay is similar to the writing assignments you will get in college, and will also give the college a deeper look into you as a prospective student. It asks you to read a passage and analyze how the author constructs a persuasive argument. You’ll have 50 minutes to complete your Essay.

If you want to attempt the essay, keep in mind that you are required to register for it. In case you don’t register for it at first, you’re welcome to add it later though.

Is there penalty for wrong answers?

SAT Score Penalty

No, there is no penalty for wrong answers on the SAT. We recommend that you go ahead and make an educated guess. Cross out the answers you have determined are wrong in your test booklet, so you can clearly see which choices are left. After you have eliminated all of the choices that you know are wrong, guessing is your best strategy. There is no advantage to leaving a question blank.

Your raw score is the sum of the number of questions you answer correctly. Raw scores are converted to scaled scores, which are used to determine percentile ranks. The percentile indicates how well you did, compared to other students who also took the SAT.

For example, if you score in the 95th percentile, you did better than 95% of other students.

Do I have to report all of my ACT scores, or can I choose which ACT scores to report?

Reporting ACT Scores

The answer depends on the school(s) to which you want to apply. ACT, will allow you to report any or all test scores. (You may not, however, choose the reading score from one test date and the math score from another test date, for example, to make a “superscore”.) For example, suppose you take the regular ACT exam  twice. You could report only the scores from the one test date that you feel is your best score. However, each college and university can set its own policy for the scores. College A may leave the choice up to you as to which scores to send, whereas University B may want to see all of your scores. Note that this is essentially done on an honor system, since ACT, swill allow you to delete the score for a particular ACT test date from your record.

How is the ACT test scored?

ACT Scoring

 

There are four primary sections, ACT English, ACT Math, ACT Reading, and ACT Science. Each of the sections are scored on a scale of 1 to 36. The same scale has been used since the first ACT test in 1959.

If you are taking the ACT Writing, you will receive 2  additional scores:

  • A combined ACT English/ ACT Writing score (on the 1-36 scale)
  • A score for your essay, on a scale of 2 to 12.

Finally, you will receive an ACT composite score, which is just the average of the 4 primary scores.

How long is the ACT exam?

 

ACT Format

The total test time for the ACT exam with the optional ACT writing section is 3 hours and 25 minutes. (Without the ACT writing section, it is 2 hours and 55 minutes.) With short breaks given during the ACT test, the total elapsed time for the ACT test (with ACT writing) is about 3 hours 45 minutes, and the total time without the ACT writing section is about 3 hours 10 minutes. The ACT test administration will begin sometime between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. local time, depending on the particular ACT test site, and end by about 12:45 p.m. Generally, you should plan to arrive at the testing location a comfortable amount of time before 8 a.m.

What level of math in GRE that I need to prepare for?

The GRE revised General Test uses the foundations of high school math to test quantitative reasoning. The test material measures your ability to understand basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis; to reason quantitatively; and to solve problems in a quantitative setting.

How does the computer-delivered GRE test work

Computer Delivered GRE

 

The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are section-level adaptive, meaning that the first section of the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures spans a range of difficulty levels, from easy to difficult. The first section of GRE is assembled such that, overall, the first section is of average difficulty. The difficulty level of the second section of each of the measures depends on your performance on the first section. For example, if for the Quantitative Reasoning measure you do very well on the first section, the second section of the Quantitative Reasoning measure will be at a higher level of difficulty. The scoring for the Quantitative Reasoning measure takes into consideration the total number of questions answered correctly across the two sections, as well as the difficulty level of the section (similar process for the Verbal Reasoning measure).

What skills does GRE measure?

GRE – Usage

The Verbal Reasoning section of GRE measures your ability to analyze and draw conclusions from the discourse. Additionally, it tests the ability to understand concepts on multiple levels, select important points, and understand the meanings of sentences and entire texts.

The Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE test measures your ability to interpret and analyze quantitative information. It also measures the use of mathematical skills such as arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics to solve problems.

The Analytical Writing section of GRE measures your ability to sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion, articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively. It requires you to support your ideas with relevant examples, and examine claims and accompanying evidence.

Under what circumstances would I be ineligible to take the LSAT?

LSAT

 

You may not take the LSAT more than three times in any two-year period. This policy applies even if you cancel your score or if your score is not otherwise reported. LSAC reserves the right to cancel your registration, rescind your admission ticket, or take any other steps necessary to enforce this policy.

For significant extenuating circumstances, LSAC may grant exceptions to this policy. To request an exception, submit a signed, detailed explanation—along with verification, if possible—addressing the circumstances that you feel make you eligible to retake the LSAT and specifying the date that you wish to test. Scan and email your request as an attachment to [email protected] or send it by fax to 215.968.1277.

You will be notified by email of approval or denial of your request. Be sure to submit your request well in advance of the regular registration deadline so that you can receive timely notification of our decision. Barring unforeseen circumstances, LSAC will respond within seven working days of receiving your request. LSAC’s decisions are final.

If you served as a test center staff member for the LSAT you may not take the LSAT in the subsequent 24-month period. Test takers who plan to take the LSAT within 24 months of having either supervised an LSAT or worked as part of the testing staff at an LSAT administration must notify LSAC upon registering for the test. LSAC will review the request and either honor the registration or offer an alternative test center and/or date. Requests must be received no later than the late registration deadline of the requested test date. Failure to abide by this requirement may result in the initiation of a misconduct and irregularities proceedings.

LSAC maintains a list of published test centers, which includes various undergraduate schools, law schools, military bases, embassies, and educational centers throughout the world. The LSAT is not administered at every test center on all testing dates, and there is limited center availability for each test administration. If you register online, you can check test center availability in real time.

When is the best time to take the LSAT?

LSAT

 

Many law schools require that the LSAT be taken by December for admission the following fall. However, taking the test earlier—in June or September/October—is often advised.
If you want to ensure you have an opportunity to repeat the test, register for either the June or September/October administration. This way, if you are unsatisfied with your initial score, the best time to take the LSAT test is in December, before law school application deadlines.

How to best prepare for GMAT?

 

GMAT – Preparation

GMAT is an aptitude test, where your skills are tested on five areas (refer to question – “how is GMAT scored?”). To best prepare for the GMAT give yourself atleast 8 – 12 weeks to study. Giving yourself 8 – 12 weeks to prepare for the GMAT provides you with enough time to master the concepts, and increases the confidence level when you take the GMAT.

2. To ensure you are prepared for the GMAT plan your exam dates and register keeping in mind as how much time you require to prepare yourself to take the final GMAT exam. I would recommend at-least 8 to 10 weeks to go through the coaching or supplemental classes. Registration is on first-come, first-served basis.

3. Gather more information by doing research about the B-schools you would like to do your masters

4. If you are join for coaching classes to prepare for the GMAT keep in mind a good course will help you boost your score by 100 and accelerate your learning

5. Familiarize yourself with the conditions and timing of the test by taking full length CAT practice tests.

6. Post your GMAT exam, start preparation on submitting your applications to your dreamed B-Schools.

How do schools use the GMAT scores?

GMAT Scores

 

GMAT scores are reliable measures of certain developed skills that have been found to be important in the study of management at the graduate level. GMAT scores have also been shown to be good predictors of academic success in the first year of study at graduate schools of management. Unlike undergraduate grade point averages (or assessments) and curricula, which vary in their meaning across institutions, GMAT scores provide school professionals with a consistent, standardized evaluation tool for all applicants. The GMAT alone does not measure all the characteristics related to success in graduate school. Admissions committees may also consider an applicant’s undergraduate record and other information obtained from applications, interviews, and letters of recommendation.

What is the GMAT score range?

GMAT score range

Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. Two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600. GMAT scores are given in increments of 10 (e.g. 540, 550, 560, 570, etc.). From the most recent data released by GMAC, the average GMAT score of all test takers is about a 540.

How is the GMAT scored?

GMAT – Scoring

 

An official GMAT score report consists of five parts:

  • GMAT Verbal Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
  • GMAT Quantitative Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
  • GMAT Total Scaled Score (on a scale from 200 to 800)
  • GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) Score (on a scale from 0 to 6)
  • GMAT Integrated Reasoning Score (on a scale from 1 to 8)

The total score is a scaled combination of the verbal and quantitative scaled scores, and thus reflects a student’s overall performance on the multiple-choice sections of the test. The AWA and the Integrated Reasoning sections

What is the IR (Integrated Reasoning) section in GMAT?

GMAT – Integrated Reasoning

On June 5, 2012, the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) introduced an integrated reasoning section to the exam that is designed to measure a test taker’s ability to evaluate data presented in new formats and multiple sources. Integrated Reasoning consists of four question types, which require you to analyze and synthesize data in different formats and from multiple sources. Almost all question formats require multiple responses. IR questions are designed to measure how well you integrate data to solve complex problems, so you must answer all parts of a single question correctly to receive credit. All answer choices for a single question are presented on the same screen. You must submit responses to all parts of the Integrated Reasoning question before moving on to a new question on another screen. Once you answer an Integrated Reasoning question, you may not go back and change the answer. Data presented in text are approximately 300 words or fewer. In the IR section answer options don’t provide information or clues that will help you solve other questions. One set of data is used for several Multi-Source Reasoning questions, but the IR questions are independent of one another—you won’t have to answer one IR question correctly to be able to answer another IR question.

What is the test structure of the GMAT?

GMAT Structure

 

The GMAT exam has the following structure- it consists of four sections – The analytical writing assessment, integrated reasoning, the quantitative section, and the verbal section. Total testing time for the GMAT is three and a half hours (four hours, with breaks.)

GMAT test structure

Section TimeQuestions
Analytical Writing Assessment30 mins1 Essay
Integrated Reasoning30 mins12 questions
Quantitative75 mins37 questions
Verbal75 mins41 questions

The quantitative and verbal sections of the GMAT exam are both multiple-choice and are administered in the computer-adaptive format, adjusting to a test taker’s level of ability. At the start of the quantitative and verbal sections, test takers are presented with a question of average difficulty. As questions are answered correctly, the computer presents the test taker with increasingly difficult questions and as questions are answered incorrectly the computer presents the test taker with questions of decreasing difficulty.

What is the Difference between SAT and ACT?

SAT vs ACT

The notion that between SAT vs ACT that one is easier than the other is not true. In some key areas (no guessing penalty, essay optional, charts/graphs, vocab, and grammar in context) the SAT has moved closer to the ACT test but the mantra of the SAT test remains somewhat unchanged. It is a critical thinking test. Those students who might have chosen the old SAT would still be making a good choice with the new SAT test. They might even have an easier time considering that the essay is now optional and the guessing penalty is gone. These two things may not make the content easier but will certainly make the test less draining and stress-inducing. It is important to remember that both tests have their pros and cons, and find what is best suited to you.

Our Advice for SAT vs ACT

Our general advice would be to take an ACT test and SAT test sample paper. See which test is easier for you and then decide.

The institution you pick receives your official score report, containing scores from every AP Exam you have ever taken, unless you have requested that one or more scores be withheld or cancelled.

If you wish to send scores to additional colleges, each report costs $15. Reports with rush processing cost $25 each.

How do I rush a score report?

Rush Score Report

When will my colleges receive my score?

AP Exam – Scores

If you designated a college or university on your AP answer sheet, it should receive your scores by early to mid July. Additional score report requests take about one week to process from the day they are received. Rush reports are processed within two working days from the day they are received.

This is done by the college board to ensure that variations in difficulty does not affect the test takers score.

How is the essay in the new SAT different?

SAT Essay

Students will have 50 minutes to complete their SAT essay. They will no longer be asked to agree or disagree or to write about their personal experience for the given topic.

The SAT Essay will no longer be required for everyone who takes the SAT; individual colleges and universities will determine whether they require SAT Essay scores from prospective students. The three SAT Essay scores will be separate from the other scores on the test.

 

The SAT essay is not mandatory.

Not all colleges require the essay score. You don’t have to take the SAT with optional Essay, but if you do, you will be able to apply to colleges that recommend or require it.  It’s is similar to the writing assignments you will get in college, and will also give the college a deeper look into you as a prospective student. It asks you to read a passage and analyze how the author constructs a persuasive argument. You’ll have 50 minutes to complete your Essay.

If you want to attempt the essay, keep in mind that you are required to register for it. In case you don’t register for it at first, you’re welcome to add it later though.

I am confused, which one should I prefer New SAT vs ACT?

The notion that between SAT vs ACT that one is easier than the other is not true. In some key areas (no guessing penalty, essay optional, charts/graphs, vocab, and grammar in context) the SAT has moved closer to the ACT test but the mantra of the SAT test remains somewhat unchanged. It is a critical thinking test. Those students who might have chosen the old SAT would still be making a good choice with the new SAT test. They might even have an easier time considering that the essay is now optional and the guessing penalty is gone. These two things may not make the content easier but will certainly make the test less draining and stress-inducing. It is important to remember that both tests have their pros and cons, and find what is best suited to you.

Our Advice for SAT vs ACT

Our general advice would be to take an ACT test and SAT test sample paper. See which test is easier for you and then decide.

 

SAT vs ACT
