SAT to ACT conversions 2017

SREE33SREE33 Registered User Posts: 289 Junior Member
So i got a 1460 on the June SAT and was curious to see how that would translate to ACT.
I also got 31 ACT before and took the recent one yesterday.
I just want to know if anyone here has a good accurate conversion chart bc the ones online are all different from each or are outdated.

    Accurate or not, Collegeboard has published one while ACT does not agree with. SAT 1460 is corresponding to ACT 32.

    also did ACT release their own converiosns?

    anyone^^^^
    all my friends have told me that a 33 is equivalent to a 1440, and 32 is 1420.
    Online some websites say 1330 is 1500, so what do i trust?

    a 1460 is what 97th %? Percentiles are what matters. Look to see what an ACT 31 is for Percentile for the ACT. .

    SAT now gives those two different percentiles one higher one lower.
    What's the point and value of having those two? Why is one not enough?
    Anyway, for compering would you use the lower or the higher percentile?

    The concordance table is subject to revise. CB just release the actual score percentile with the new SAT scores. ACT has not accept, non publish, any conversion table between ACT and the new SAT score. Whether 1460 in SAT or 31 in ACT is better would depend on the school and the section score distribution.
    Here is the only "official" concordance table from CB right now although it is still disputable: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/higher-ed-brief-sat-concordance.pdf
