We can also recommend the article section either here or in next section like you did for "If you’re more interested in the exam itself and want to know more of what it entails, read some of our Security+ exam articles about the exam experience, career paths available to you after taking the exam, and some general exam tips (especially on how to answer multiple-choice questions)."

Understanding SAT Test Score

  • Raw Score (Multiple Choice Only): You begin with 0 points. For every question you answer correctly, you earn 1 point. For every question you answer incorrectly, you lose one-fourth of 1 point. For every question you omit, you earn 0 points.
  • Raw Score (Fill-in-the-Blank): You begin with 0 points. For every question you answer correctly, you earn 1 point. Otherwise, an incorrect or omitted answer is worth 0 points.
  • Essay Scoring: Essays are scored on a scale of 1-6, 6 being the highest. Two graders score the essay, and the combined score is used to determine the overall 2-12 score on the essay
  • Scaled SAT Score: For each major section of the SAT, your raw score is converted into a scaled (200-800) score using a skewed normal curve. A higher raw score corresponds to a higher scaled score.

SAT Question Types

  • Multiple Choice: A question and five responses are presented. You must choose the correct response or omit the question. Guessing penalty applied.
  • Fill-in-the-Blank: A question is presented in the mathematics section. You must bubble in the correct numerical response.
