Points to Note:
Because all scaled scores are reported as rounded scores, all equivalents should be considered close approximations. When actual scores are calculated, precise formulae are used to generate the scaled score. Students will retain the same rank order compared to other students even if their numerical scores change. The scores are equivalent in terms of the level of reasoning ability they represent.

Do not use this table to convert mean scores. The Mean Score Equivalents table should be used to convert means for SAT® I: Reasoning Test scores.
