How to calculate PSAT score: raw and to scale
- Step 1: Determine the Raw Score. The raw score is a relatively simple localized PSAT score.
- Step 2: Convert to Graduated Score. The scaled or matched score is the final partial score you will receive on the PSAT.
- Step 3: Combine to get the total score.
|99. (best)||750 and more||730 and beyond|
|75. (very good)||570||590 *|
|50. ### (good / average)||490500||510 *|
According to this graph, a good PSAT value for a junior is a composite value of over 1150 or 1160, an OK value of over 1010, and a good value of just over 1290.
Basically, PSAT values are between 320 and 1520. The average PSAT value is around 920 (460 for math and 460 for evidence-based reading and writing), while an excellent PSAT value (a value that you like semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship) is between 1420 and 1480.
A score of 1050 is average. Nationally, you are in the lower 49th percentile of the 1.7 million students taking the SAT entrance exam this year. In comparison, a 1050 on SAT converts to 20 on ACT based on College Board / ACT compliance. Is
A GREAT PSAT Score:
PSAT is rated on a scale of 320 520.
Yes, a score of 1400 is extremely good. This puts you in the top 95 percentiles of the 1.7 million students nationwide who will take the SAT entrance exam this year. In comparison, a 1400 on SAT converts to 31 on ACT based on College Board / ACT compliance.
Students are given a score on a scale of 160 to 760 for each of the sections, with 160 being the lowest and 760 being the highest possible. The two graded points are added together to give the student’s total PSAT score, with a total score from 320 to 1520.
Period. PSAT is a little brighter than SAT and the values reflect that. PSAT has the same sections but their scales work at 160760. The concepts and question types are very similar. You will only see some of the more difficult questions on SAT.
To calculate the selection index, simply add the scores on the three PSAT parts and multiply the sum by 2. Let’s say you have 28 for reading, 32 for writing and language, and 34 for math. To find your sample index value, first add your sections: 28 + 32 + 34 = 94.
