Is It Possible to Raise My SAT Score by 200 Points in 15 Days?

Good Afternoon, I just received my SAT score and am quite disappointed with my results; 1050/1600. I was only given 1 week to study for the SAT because my high school exams were during that month. I am weak in math, especially since I am taking Consumer Math this year (I am a Senior). I chose to tak...

Good SAT Score Possible on First Attempt?

Is it possible to get a decent SAT score (1400-1600) in the first attempt? I'm giving the test in January which means I'll only get one attempt. I'm relying on Khan Academy and practice tests to get by. English is my strength, Math needs practice. So if I set my sights on a good score, is it unreali...

New SAT Scoring vs Old SAT scoring for Kennesaw State University

My daughter got a 1050 on the March 2016 exam. She is going to Kennesaw State University who had a 950 requirement for the old exam. They haven't determined their new exam scoring requirement. I'm trying to figure out if this score will be good enough for entry. Any help?? Steve

What's the ACT score equivalent for my new SAT score?

I got a 1300 on the new SAT, which is supposedly a 1950 on the old SAT or a 29 on the ACT. However, some websites say a 1300 on the new SAT is the equivalent of a 27(almost 28) or 28, and some have it at a 28 or 29. My score report also stated that 1300 was in the 91st percentile, and the 91st perce...

My daughter scored a 1060 on her practice SAT. Since this scoring system is new to me, can you provide some reference for how this compares to the old SAT, and if it's an okay score? She previously scored a 1430 (on the old SAT).

How do schools determine their new SAT benchmarks?

Since the SAT is new, and there won't be exact statistical admission averages, will schools use the same correlation guidelines published by the College Board to determine acceptance criteria? If not, how do they generate their own range of scores for freshman acceptance?

How do science questions on the new SAT compare to ones on the ACT?

I heard that the new SAT would incorporate science questions similar to those on the ACT, but I don’t understand how that works since the ACT has an actual science section and the new SAT only has reading and math sections. I'm a little worried because I didn't do great in ACT Science. Can you clar...

Did the new SAT eliminate point deduction for wrong answers?

I’ve heard that the scoring has changed for the new SAT in regards to wrong answers. From what I understand, getting something wrong doesn't take off points anymore. Is this true, and will this make it easier to get a higher score?

Worth Retaking SAT Without Superscoring?

I found out about the SATs too late so I only got to take the old SAT once in January 2016. My guidance counselor is advising me to take the SATs again because she is worried that the score isn't good enough for the schools that I am aiming for (I got a 2230: 800W, 740M, 690R). Do you think it is wo...

Advantage to Taking New SAT (Good Old SAT Score)?

If you've already gotten a great score on the old SAT, and you are in the class of 2017, is there any advantage to giving the new test a try in the Spring just to see if you are naturally better at it? If you did worse on the new test, would you have to share those scores with the colleges you apply...

Guessing on the new SAT?

I hear there's no longer a guessing penalty on the new SAT. If this is the case, should I always guess on all the questions I can't figure out? Is there any situation where I should avoid guessing?

Should I take the new SAT if I've already taken the old version?

I have a 1940 on the Current SAT and I'm taking it second time this weekend to try for 2000+. However, I also want to get a good score on the New SAT. Would taking 4 SAT's (2 old and 2 new) look weird to colleges considering I'm in the class that is transitioning between versions?

Possible to raise SAT score 300 points in 3 months?

I'm not happy with how I'm currently scoring on the new SAT, and I was wondering if I would be able to improve my score by 300 points or more with a 3 month study plan. I'd like to go from a 1000 to a 1300 or higher. Is this an unrealistic goal?
