How to determine your SAT score?

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

<p>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?</p>

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

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

<p>Thanks! :)</p>

<p>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.</p>

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

<p>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 =]</p>

<p>To get your score out of 1600, add up your reading and mathematics scores. You would have a 1080/1600. </p>

<p>Yes, your score out of 2400 is a 1720. Your chances are slim to none at a competitive school with these scores. </p>

<p>If you have specific colleges in mind, go to this website ( Advanced</a> college finder - find colleges and universities using QuickFinder. ) and put the name in. Then, look at their average SAT scores and see if you fall in their range.</p>

<p>Yup, it's 2400. A while ago, the SAT was just comprised of the CR and math sections, so it was out of a total of 1600. Then the writing section was added, so now it's out of 2400 points.</p>
