SAT & ACT Score Comparison

 

(To see the table click the headline of the article)

SAT & ACT Score Comparison

Here is how it is interpreted by

Princeton Review.

College Board (pdf)

Princeton Review Chart is given below:
The chart below contains comparative scores for three tests.
It is important to note that a student that scores well on the ACT is not guaranteed to have similar success on the SAT and vice versa. (Scores between the Current SAT and the New SAT should be consistent.)

For example, say a student earns an ACT composite score of 31; colleges will view this score as being in the same range of a 1360 – 1400 on the SAT.

But it does not mean the student will actually earn that score if he took the SAT. This relationship is merely a way of looking at the competitive equivalent of the two tests, and is not meant to be a predictor of student performance.

ACT
If you scored
Current SAT
or a
New SAT
it’s about the same as
36 1600 2400
35 1560-1590 2340
34 1510-1550 2260
33 1460-1500 2190
32 1410-1450 2130
31 1360-1400 2040
30 1320-1350 1980
