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:

By looking at this table, you can get a good idea of what your SAT score will be based on the scores you earned on the PSAT.

However, it’s important to know that this SAT score is not set in stone. If you do not like your projected SAT score- change it!

 

The benefit of starting to prepare for the SAT early and taking the PSAT is that you can use the information you receive about your scores to figure out areas where you need to improve before you take the SAT. This way, you will be able to do even better when it is time for you to take the SAT during your junior and senior years of high school.
