SAT Subject Test curves?

GPAx213GPAx213 Posts: 1,167Registered User Senior Member
I know its different each test but anyone know the curves (how many you can get wrong and still get 800?)

Math IIC: around 6 wrong?
Math IC: Nothing wrong
US History: like 15 wrong?
World History: like 13 wrong?
Korean and Chinese: Everyone gets 800 so w.e.
Lit: 2 wrong?
Physics: 20? lol

anyone else know curves for other tests?

    i thought chem has a pretty good curve.
  • 1MX1MX Posts: 1,887Registered User Senior Member
    2 or 3 off the raw score... 2 wrong is 3 off raw score
    Lit is 4 I believe

  • GPAx213GPAx213 Posts: 1,167Registered User Senior Member
    oh that sucks..
  • 1MX1MX Posts: 1,887Registered User Senior Member
    4 is 5 off raw score, so that's the 4 curve

    These are the lowest raw scores you need to get an 800, according to the Blue Book.

    Math 1: 49/50
    Math 2: 44/50
    Bio E: 77/80
    Bio M: 77/80
    Chem: 82/85
    Physics: 59/75
    US History: 79/90
    World History: 78/95
    Lit: 59/61
    Korean: 78/80
    Chinese: 80/85

  • GPAx213GPAx213 Posts: 1,167Registered User Senior Member
    yeah i thought i saw somewhere that physics has the best curve. so i guess i was right. thanks.
  • Physics08Physics08 Posts: 978Registered User Member
    Physics is like miss 8- 10 questions..not minus 20.
  • Sheed30Sheed30 Posts: 12,425Registered User Senior Member
    I know right.....confusing me big time these people...who actually took the test got like 15 wrong and got an 800...??? no-one? okay thank you
  • rockermcrrockermcr Posts: 14,670Registered User Senior Member
    My blue book says 59/75=800. This doesn't mean that you can make 16 mistakes. Are we forgetting the guessing penalty?
  • Sheed30Sheed30 Posts: 12,425Registered User Senior Member
    no we're not forgetting the penalty.......
