SAT Test Result





How, When and Where are SAT Results Declared?

The official SAT website offers a lot of information and help to students who are beginning or have already begun their journey of appearing for the SAT exam. Right from registering for the exam, choosing colleges, preparing for the exam, receiving the SAT test result and sending it to your chosen colleges, the College board website does all of this for a candidate and even more.

The SAT Test Result

The SAT test result received by the candidate is a comprehensive report of the candidate’s performance in the exam. It compares this performance with that of the other SAT test-takers who have appeared for the SAT, and also gives a percentile ranking to the candidate, based on this comparison. The three components of the SAT exam are rated from 200 to 800 and the entire final SAT test result is out of 2400, along with sub scores for the essay (2 to 12) and the multiple choice section (20 to 80). The final SAT test result consists of individual scores of the three components, the total percentile and the sub-scores. Candidates can visit the College Board website to keep a track of their SAT test result at http://sat.collegeboard.org/scores

When are the SAT Test Results Declared?

After having appeared for your SAT exam, the next obvious wait would that be for your SAT test result. For those candidates who have an online account with the College Board website can access a part of their SAT test result three weeks after they sit for the SAT exam. This might not be the complete SAT test result and for this they, along with those candidates who registered by mail, have to wait for 5 weeks before they get their final SAT test result (either by mail or in their online account). For example if you sit for your SAT test on January 28, 2012, your internet score delivery will take place on the 17, February, 2012 and by 24, February, 2012 the CD-ROMS and paper scores will begin to be mailed out to candidates. The CD-ROMS and paper scores will be mailed via the internet by February 16, 2012 and by February 24, 2012 via mail to their respective high-schools and colleges which they mentioned during the registration process. The internet score delivery of your SAT test result is faster as there’s no postal mail involved and it’s all via internet. A detailed overview of these dates can be seen at http://professionals.collegeboard.com/testing/sat-reasoning/scores/dates.

How to Receive the SAT Test Result?

There are three ways to view your SAT test result and three ways to receive the results as well, namely by the internet, via CD-ROMS or by paper score reports. Official score reports are sent to the candidate and/or to his/her high-school and colleges/universities chosen by the candidate at the time of registration. Sending the official score report to four colleges is free of cost and is inclusive in the registration fee, if the candidate wishes to exercise this option. Candidates also have the option of ‘Score Choice’, a feature introduced by the College Board to help students choose their best scores to be sent to the colleges/universities of their choice. As the College Board sends all the score reports to the colleges/universities chosen by the candidate, and there could be times when the candidate does not want certain score reports to reach the colleges/universities, then he can use the ‘Score Choice’ feature. Candidates can learn more about receiving and sending their SAT test result to colleges/universities at http://professionals.collegeboard.com/testing/sat-reasoning/scores/student-reports.

Candidates await their SAT test result with a lot of anticipation as it heralds a coming change in their future. The College Board website understands this emotion of a SAT test-taker and has made it a quick and simple task to receive and send the SAT test result to concerned high-school or universities. Additional features of online accounts and ‘Score Choice’ are also devised keeping in mind the SAT test-taker’s convenience and requirements.
