SAT Conversion Chart

SAT Conversion, Convert SAT Score, SAT Conversion Scale

Students can’t possibly know if they’re better at the SAT as compared to the ACT without first taking practice tests of both exams.

Are you looking for an SAT conversion chart to convert your ACT score? Search no more. We’ve got this SAT and ACT conversion chart for you. Our chart converts every ACT score to an equivalent SAT score. And, yes, equivalent is the right word because a 36 ACT score equates to a 1600 SAT. So all of those parents and students out there who believe that highly selective colleges value the SAT more than they do the ACT, well, ignore the peanut gallery.

So without further ado, let’s share with our readers College Board’s SAT conversion chart. Or else they’ll say we’re teasing them like that time Rachel Maddow told her audience she had President Trump’s taxes. She had like two pages, pages that were likely leaked by Trump himself.

Taking Practice SAT and ACT

So often we hear from students that they took the SAT or the ACT without ever taking a practice exam of the other test. They just decided that the SAT or the ACT would be better for them. But how could they know without first doing a practice test under timed conditions? It’s impossible. They seemingly chose to take the most important test of their life at random.

We encourage all of our students at Ivy Coach to take an SAT and ACT practice test in their homes on different days under timed conditions. If a student performs better on the SAT, she should take the SAT. If a student performs better on the ACT, she should take the ACT. It’s that simple. Too often students choose to take one of these tests because of their geography (students in the midwest tend to prefer the ACT whereas students on the coasts tend to prefer the SAT and this has been the case for many years — though more students take the ACT these days than the SAT).

Valuing SAT and ACT

There are still so many students and parents out there who believe that highly selective colleges place more value on the SAT as compared to the ACT. This simply isn’t true. As we’ve said on the pages of this college admissions blog for many years, highly selective colleges value the SAT and the ACT equally. Submitting a perfect ACT score is the same as submitting a perfect SAT score and we’ll say this until we’re blue in the face. Like a Smurf.

If you’re a student interested in improving your SAT or ACT score, you’re in luck because Ivy Coach offers SAT and ACT prep to students from across America and around the world via Skype. Or if you’re a student who just came here to check out our SAT conversion chart, well that’s ok too! Oh, and if you’re interested in converting your old SAT score to a new SAT score, College Board provides excellent concordance tables.
