SAT Practice Test # 8 GET SECTION AND TOTAL SCORES Your total score on the SAT practice test is the sum of your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score and your Math Section score. To get your total score, you will convert what we call the “raw score” for each section—the number of questions you got right in that section—into the “scaled score” for that section, then calculate the total score. GET YOUR EVIDENCE‑BASED READING AND WRITING SECTION SCORE Calculate your SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section score (it’s on a scale of 200–800) by frst determining your Reading Test score and your Writing and Language Test score. Here’s how: Count the number of correct answers you got on Section 1 (the Reading Test). There is no penalty for wrong answers. The number of correct answers is your raw score. Go to Raw Score Conversion Table 1: Section and Test Scores on page 7. Look in the “Raw Score” column for your raw score, and match it to the number in the “Reading Test Score” column. Do the same with Section 2 to determine your Writing and Language Test score. Add your Reading Test score to your Writing and Language Test score.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
