SAT Results

How are SAT scores calculated?

Candidates receiving the SAT score is the sum of your reading, writing and math scores. The essay section score is calculated separately. To calculate the section-wise score, the SAT Scoring Team collects the data of raw scores, i.e.) the number of correct answers in each section, and convert them to a scaled score of 200 to 800.

What is Percentile in SAT Scores?

Candidates’ percentile rank in the SAT exam scores represents the percentage of students/candidates whose SAT score is either equal or lower than their score. For instance, if a student’s SAT score is 80th percentile, 80% of the students who took the SAT exam have achieved that score range or below.

How to Check Sat Scores?

  1. Sign in to your account from the College Board site.
  2. Click on the online score report for either your essay or your multiple-choice scores.
  3. Printing your scores: Click on the Details button and click the Download Report button to print your scores (this option is available on Desktop mode only).
  4. Receiving scores by phone: You can receive SAT scores by phone post the results are declared on the respective results date. An additional fee is to be paid to avail this feature.

Most institutions in the USA require candidates to submit their SAT score reports through the College Board.

What is Answer Services?

The College Board team has a robust and systematic approach in calculating candidates’ test scores to ensure accuracy. In order to cross-verify test scores, candidates have access to the test score verification services, i.e.) Answer Services.

When candidates order answering service for their SAT results, based on the location and the time they had taken the test, they will receive either Student Answer Service (SAS) or Question-and-Answer Service (QAS)

Both SAS and QAS services can help students/candidates to have valuable insights to prepare better for retaking the SAT Exam. Candidates can apply for answer services when they register for the SAT Exam or after their SAT Exam Date.


Question and Answer Service Format

The Question-and-Answer Format includes:

  • A copy of a report demonstrating candidates’ answers and the SAT questions.
  • The scoring system, instructions and the right answers.
  • Insight about the difficulty and type of each test question.
   Student Answer Service Format

The Student Answer Format includes:

  • A full-fledged SAT results report demonstrating how well candidates have answered questions in each section.
  • Insights on the difficulty and type of each test question.

Hand Score Verification

  • Candidates can request answer services either during test registration or after their test date. 
  • Candidates not ordering answer service during registration can still order via below-mentioned ways:
  1. Sign in to the College Board account and tap on Order Now.
  2. Customer Service at 212-713-7789 (International).

Note: The fee for answer service is non-refundable. Candidates can apply for a refund only if they are absent on the test day.

How to Order Answer Service?

If a candidate has not received a score that they expected, the error would probably have been incorrectly marking the answers. In this case, the College Board provides candidates with an option to rescore the test through hand verification. Candidates can apply for hand score verification by filling out the request form on the website.

Question-and-Answer Service (QAS) $16
