# How to determine your SAT score?

So I'm kinda new to this. I just got my SAT scores (this was my first time taking it).

I got a 550 on reading, a 530 on mathematics, and a 640 on writing. How do I determine my SAT score. Do I just add them up?

Also, is the SAT out of 1600 or 2400? I hear so many things but I'm so confused.

If I add my scores up, I get a 1720. Would you consider this a decent score? I honestly can't tell.

Thanks! :)

Your SAT score is ((math score) + (reading score) + (writing score)). The sum of these three scores is your total score out of 2400.
((530)+(550)+(640)) = 1720. It is viewed as a 1720/2400.

you add all three to get the 2400 score and just the math and reading for the 1600 score.

Your overall score is very average (especially out of 1600 when you disregard the writing section, so I'd say take it again and try to bring it up. Good luck =]
