Your SAT School Day Score Explained

There are 2 options for accessing your scores:

  1. Ask your school counselor for your SAT School Day score report.
  2. Access the BigFuture® School mobile app if you provided your mobile number on test day.

As always, students age 13 and older may use a personal College Board student account to view additional insights online.

Score Summary

On your score report PDF, you can view the three scores available from your SAT School Day assessment—total score, Reading and Writing section score, and Math section score.

For each score, the official score report PDF includes:

  • All possible scores:
    • 400–1600 for total score
    • 200–800 for section scores
  • Your Score Range: This range shows how much your scores would likely vary if you took a different administration of the test under identical conditions.
  • The All Tester Percentile (formally called the "User Percentile") of each score. For example, if a student's score is in the 70th percentile, 70% of a comparison group achieved scores at or below that student's score. All Tester Percentiles are based on the actual scores of the past 3 graduating classes of students in their grade who took the SAT. The All Tester Percentiles for the first digital administrations in 2023–24 are reported on tests completed anywhere in the world.

Knowledge and Skills

In the Knowledge and Skills section of the score report PDF, you'll see a graphic that shows your performance on each of the eight content areas measured on the SAT. There are four content areas in Reading and Writing, and four in Math.

For each content area, you'll see:

  • The approximate number of questions in the content area.
  • The percentage of the section covered by that area (e.g., 12–14 questions would be about 26% of the Reading and Writing section).
  • A visual indication of how you performed in each content area.

You can use this section to identify content areas you may want to focus on to practice and improve.

Career Snapshot

If you live in the U.S., you'll also see a section on the score report PDF that provides a snapshot of growing careers in your state, based on state labor market information and your assessment performance. This snapshot includes the following information:

  • The median yearly income of each career.
  • The expected growth rate for new job openings in your state over the next 5 years.
  • The most common education level for people in that career.

This list might include a career you're curious about—or maybe none of the options feel like a great fit. It's okay! The careers listed are not the only jobs available in your state or the only jobs you can consider for yourself.

The careers are just a starting point, so we encourage you to explore more options that match your interests and skills at satsuite.org/whatsnext.

BigFuture School

If you live in the U.S. and provided a mobile phone number when you took the SAT, you can also download the BigFuture School mobile app and you'll get a text message when your scores are available to view.

In the app, you'll see all of the same information available on the score report PDF. You'll also have access to additional information, including:

  • More detailed score insights and percentile data.
  • Resources about scholarships, financial aid, and planning for college or careers.
  • Connections™: Eligible students may also have the option to hear from nonprofit colleges and scholarship programs by opting in to this feature.
