PSAT to SAT Score Conversion Table

While there is no surefire way to predict your score on the SAT, the score you earn on the PSAT is a pretty good indicator of how well you will do on test day.

The PSAT, which students typically take during their sophomore or junior year of high school, is a slightly less advanced version of the SAT, but it covers the same core questions and features similar content. This means that if you do well on the PSAT, chances are high that you will also do well on the SAT.

If you want to earn an impressive score on the SAT, it is important that you start prepping early. Taking the PSAT is a great way to get a jumpstart on your test preparation because your PSAT scores will give you an idea of areas where you need to improve before you take the SAT.

Here is a score conversion table from the College Board that you can use to see approximately how well you will do on the SAT based on your PSAT score:
