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.

If you scored
Current SAT
or a
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
29 1280-1310 1920
28 1240-1270 1860
27 1210-1230 1820
26 1170-1200 1760
25 1130-1160 1700
24 1090-1120 1650
23 1060-1080 1590
22 1020-1050 1530
21 980-1010 1500
20 940-970 1410
19 900-930 1350

What Happens If My Undergraduate GPA Is Low?

Undergraduate GPA is the most common criterion used in admission, but it is not an infallible predictor of graduate success.

If you discover that your GPA is low, either in terms of being below the minimum required for admission, or low by comparison with other persons applying to a particular program, you need to find some ways to offset the lack of a high GPA. Since graduate programs often use multiple criteria for admission, this is not as difficult as it may seem at first. By gathering strong recommendation letters, scoring well on admissions tests, doing internships or post-baccalaureate employment in the field, you can offset the effect of a low GPA.

It is also appropriate to call attention to non-academic circumstances which may have prevented your GPA to accurately represent your capacity, so as to place your record in an appropriate context. If circumstances affected your performance, you can describe them and indicate what steps you have taken to overcome those circumstances. Such explanations can either be incorporated in your statement of purpose or written up as a separate statement to be included with your application form. The important thing is to phrase your explanation so that it does not sound like excuse-making. Having others read and critique your statement can be very helpful here.

If your GPA was the result of a learning disability or other such condition, you will have to decide whether or not to disclose the disability in explaining your academic performance. Federal law prohibits discrimination in admissions on the basis of disability. It is even illegal to require applicants to disclose disabilities on an application form. But many students feel that disclosing their disability in the admissions process places them at a disadvantage. I can’t argue that they are wrong.

I will say this: if you can show that, once your disability was identified and you began to receive necessary accommodations, your performance was much stronger than it previously was, or better yet equaled or exceeded the minimum required for admission, you have placed yourself in a strong position. If you show that reasonable accommodations put you on an equal footing with the other applicants to the program, the program can’t disqualify you on the basis of your disability.

Schools That Do Not Use SAT or ACT Scores for Admitting

Fair Test a non profitable organization encouraging schools to discard the use of SAT / ACT for their admission process
This is a list of over 800 schools and includes accredited, bachelor-degree granting colleges and universities that deemphasize the use of standardized tests by making admissions decisions about substantial numbers of applicants who recently graduated from U.S. high schools without using the SAT or ACT. Some schools exempt students who meet grade-point average or class rank criteria while others require SAT or ACT scores but use them only for placement purposes or to conduct research studies. Please check with the school’s admissions office to learn more about specific admissions requirements, particularly for international or non-traditional
