Report Details

Your score report includes detailed information on a variety of scores that will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses.

Section Scores

See how you did on each section by looking at your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score and your Math score.
Click the View Details button on your dashboard to learn more about section scores and to see your other scores.
If you took the SAT with Essay, scroll to the bottom to see your scores.
College and Career Readiness Benchmarks show whether you’re on track to be ready for college and a career.
PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 score reports include projected score ranges for each section score. They are calculated for the assessment typically taken by students a grade ahead of you. They’re based on a research study of average growth and score gain for students in your grade. You can outperform these projections by taking challenging courses and continuing to work hard.

Areas of Strength and Weakness

Scroll down to look at your test scores, cross-test scores, and subscores to get a detailed analysis of your performance in specific areas. Areas where your skills are strong appear in green. The red and yellow zones are important to focus on because they show where you most need to improve your skills. Learn more about scores and what they mean to you:

  • SAT scores
  • PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 scores
  • PSAT 8/9 scores

If you opted in to Student Search Service® and took either the PSAT/NMSQT or the PSAT 10, you could also be invited to apply for scholarships offered by our new partners.

Send SAT and SAT Subject Test Scores to Colleges and Scholarship Programs

To see where you’ve already sent your scores and to send more score reports:

  1. From your dashboard, click View Details for an SAT or SAT Subject Test score report.
  2. Click Score Sends from the menu.

Old and New SAT Scores

The new SAT—offered for the first time in March 2016—and the old SAT have different test sections and are scored differently. Colleges plan to accept scores from both for the next few years.
To compare scores from both tests, use the SAT Score Converter. It can help you decide which scores to send to colleges using Score Choice™. But keep in mind that you can send all your scores since most colleges consider a student’s best score. And always check college websites to confirm their score send policies.

Troubleshoot Missing Scores

If you’ve signed in but don’t see your score report, make sure scores for your assessment are ready.
If scores have been released but you can’t see yours, we might be unable to match your scores to the information on your answer sheet. For security reasons, we’ll ask you to click the Add Score(s) button on your dashboard and provide additional information, an SAT registration number, a Subject Test registration number, or an access code for a PSAT-related assessment.

Providing Personal Info

To protect your privacy, we need to ensure the score report is linked to you. If the identifying information in your online account doesn’t match the information you provided, try again or enter your access code or registration number to retrieve your scores. If you’re still having trouble, contact customer service.

Where to Find Your PSAT-Related Assessment Access Code

  • If you provided a valid email address on your PSAT 10 or PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet, your access code was emailed to you.
  • You can also find the access code on the paper score report sent to your school.
  • Counselors can retrieve your access code from their online score reporting portal.

Where to Find Your SAT or Subject Test Registration Number

  • Your SAT or Subject Test registration number is printed on your Admission Ticket.
  • If you received a paper score report, you’ll also find the registration number there.
  • Counselors can retrieve your registration number from their online score reporting portal.


If you took the PSAT/NMSQT before 2015 and that score report isn’t showing up, click the Add Score(s) button on your dashboard and provide the access code found on the paper score report sent to your school. If you lost your paper score report, ask your counselor for a copy or the access code. If you’re still having trouble, contact customer service.

Scoring Changes to the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT

Scores for the new SAT and PSAT/NMSQT look different from those of previous years because the tests have been redesigned. To learn more about the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9, visit SAT Suite of Assessments.

SAA Indicator

If you see “SAA” (state-allowed accommodation) on your score report, you’ve taken the assessment with a testing accommodation allowed by your state but not approved by the College Board.

  • If you took the SAT with these accommodations, you can’t send those scores to colleges or scholarship programs.
  • If you took the PSAT/NMSQT with these accommodations, you’re not eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Check with your school for details.
