Many students wonder what their ACT score would be equivalent to on the current or new SAT. The chart below contains comparative scores for all three tests.
It is important to note that a student that scores well on the ACT is not guaranteed to have similar success on the SAT and vice versa. (Scores between the Current SAT and the New SAT should be consistent.) For example, say a student earns an ACT composite score of 31; colleges will view this score as being in the same range of a 1360 – 1400 on the SAT. But it does not mean the student will actually earn that score if he took the SAT. This relationship is merely a way of looking at the competitive equivalent of the two tests, and is not meant to be a predictor of student performance.
