So you took one of the first administrations of the redesigned SAT. What does that mean for the fall 2016 college admission cycle?

New SAT scores

The College Board has published an online tool and concordance tables to help students, teachers, parents, and admissions officers understand how the recent test changes impact SAT scores.

Want to know if your new SAT scores are good enough to get you accepted at your dream school? Follow these three steps.

1. Find your dream school's SAT score range

You can find the SAT scores for the 25th and 75th percentile of students in the most recently enrolled class on each of our college profiles on the "Admissions" tab. Remember, that score range is from the old SAT because those students applied to college before the test was redesigned.

2. Convert your new SAT scores to the old SAT scale

Compare your new SAT results to the old test using the SAT Score Converter. You’ll be asked to provide your total SAT score as well as your section scores.

3. Compare your scores to the college profile

Are the converted scores within the 25th-75th percentile range for your school? If your scores fall well within the school’s average range, that college could be a good match. Read more about what is a good SAT score.

Even if your scores are below or at the bottom of the range, admission is still possible. With a smart SAT prep plan, you CAN improve your score. Our SAT experts will go over your score report in more detail and help you strategize your next move.
