Sat/psat

<p>I got a 233 on a practice PSAT. What are my chances of getting a similar score on the SAT? (more info below)
The practice PSAT was unofficial but timed. I took the PSAT test out of the 11-test Princeton Review SAT booklet (The 11th test in the book is a PSAT test strangely enough). Also, I have plenty of time to prepare for the real SAT (I take it in January), and I excel at writing essays. Thanks a lot!</p>

<p>Writing: 78
Math: 77
Reading: 78
I do know that to approximate my score, I multiply my score (233) by 10. So my SAT score would be around a 2330. But what are my chances of doing this well?</p>

<p>Don't use unofficial practice tests as indicators of how you will score on the real thing. In fact, avoid unofficial tests altogether.</p>

<p>If you got a 233 on a practice psat, although unofficial, I would anticipate a 2200+ with little prep.</p>

<p>Also, how the hell is a 77 possible in the psat math? -1 on the actual SAT math is a 760, and there are twice as many questions... So wouldn't a -1 on PSAT be a ~72 or 73?</p>

<p>^ No. -1 on SAT Math has historically yielded 780-800. 760 didn't even happen until recently.</p>

<p>i agree. you should be able to get around 2200 on the psat.</p>

<p>Well, I got a 78 on last October's PSAT (missed a grid-in -_-). It's possible; it all depends on the curve, I guess.</p>
