May SAT 2012 Conversion Chart Grading Scale

edited May 2012 in SAT Preparation
How about we all post our SAT scores with how many questions we got wrong in each category in order to reconstruct the grading scale used to convert the raw score to a score out of 800.

On CR I got 7 wrong and omitted 1 (a raw score of 57/67) which was a 690.
On Math I got 1 wrong (raw score 53/54) and got 790.
On Writing I got 6 wrong (raw score 42/49) and a 10 essay resulting in a 690.

Here's the table we can work on once people start submitting their scores!

    Jonathan94, the Writing score is out of 49 points, so I am not sure what you mean by 75 out of 80...

  • heybrosupheybrosup Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    is it different for certain problems or something? i had 50/54 on the math and only received a 700
  • PeppinoPeppino Registered User Posts: 316 Member
    No, it shouldn't be different. Maybe you got 4 questions wrong, which would equal -5 points and therefore a 49/54
