What’s a “Good” SAT Score for 2020?
At Aegis Advisors, one of the most common question we get is “what’s considered a good SAT score?”
According to Prep Scholar with data gathered from College Board, the average SAT score for 2019 was 1059 with an average score of 531 for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and an average score of 528 for Math.
Note: SAT percentiles refer to the percentage of students who are performing at or below your child’s level. For example, a 65th percentile score means that 65% of students are performing as well as or worse than your child.
So what does this all mean? On a personal level, a good SAT score is one that is both realistically achievable for your child, and is also within range for his or her university choices. Most universities will publish their range of scores for students they accepted, and as a general rule, we suggest to target to score at least within 50% percentile of that range for your child’s preferred universities.
As there are only four test dates per year to take the SAT Reasoning Test
, it is critical to prepare well and in advance. To figure out the best preparation plan for your child, we suggest to start by taking a mock test and then going through it with someone familiar with the test. If you would like our help through this process, please contact us at +852 81755687
