# act sat comparison

<p>what does getting a 30 and 31 on the ACT equate to on the SAT out of 2400.</p>

<p>i took the ACT with writing if that makes a difference</p>

<p>The writing does not affect the composite score, if I remember correctly.</p>

<p>I believe a 30 is like a 2000, a 31 is somewhere around a 2050, and a 32 is about a 2100.</p>

<p>how can 30 be equal to 2000 or 32 equal to 2100? there's a range of 30's and 32's.
E.g. a 30 can be: 29.5, 29.75, 30, and 30.25.
How does the score conversion account for that?
and also, even though it seems like there's just a point of difference between, say a 33 and a 34, it could be more than just that.
E.g. a 33.25 and 33.5. One is a 33 and one is a 34, but that 34 is pretty much just outside the range of 33. Alternatively, a 32.5 and a 34.25 are way apart from each other. How is that accounted for? Is it still looked at as a one point difference?</p>

<p>Google "SAT ACT concordance" (as three separate words, not as a phrase) and you will see that there are various tables on this subject, some specific to particular university systems. </p>

<p>I have never gotten the "conversion". I honestly dont think u can convert. 31 is 98th percentile for the ACT. a 2050? That is no where near the 98th percentile. And i have heard a 31 and up will not alone get u rejected from a college, while a 2050 is barely competitive for many colleges. How does that work?</p>

<p>Kevinscool,
Here's College Board's comparison table (they only provide a CR+M to ACT comparision.)
