I've heard that over 1850 is a competitive score on the new SATs.

There isn't a conversion between the two. The SAT I is the standard math, reading, writing test, which is required for most colleges. The SAT II, know as SAT Subject Tests, are one hour tests in one subject only. These tests allow you to show your strengths in particular subjects - especially the sciences and foreign languages as these are not tested on the SAT I - but most students take them because some colleges require them. SAT II scores have varying curves depending on the test, so conversion to SAT I scores is impossible.

Almost all colleges accept ACT scores or SAT scores.

There are many community colleges that will accept low SAT scores or accept students without an SAT score. Regular colleges will also accept students with low SAT scores if they have some interesting volunteer experience or skill.

No colleges accept AP scores instead of SAT scores. This is because the tests do not measure the same things.The SAT measures the likelihood that a student will do well in college, but is not accepted as college credit. The AP is used to provide actual college credit, but does not predict college success.

While both are made by the ETS for college admissions, the SAT is a standardized test that tests test-taking ability and readiness for college. The SAT II (also known as subject tests) is a shorter, more specific set of tests that test students on certain subjects such as chemistry and world history. Almost every college in the U.S. will accept SAT scores and SAT II scores, but some colleges recommend SAT II subject tests more than others.

No - there are relatively few colleges that require or even have the ability to record SAT subject test scores on applications. If the college requires them, you will need to have good SAT subject test scores. Other than that, you don't need to worry about taking those tests at all.

All colleges have different timelines for when SAT scores are due. Go to a particular school's website and under admission, you can find out their specific timeline.

You can request SAT Scores to be sent to colleges using the CollegeBoard website. Your SAT Scores will also be stored by CollegeBoard on their website and can be accessed on demand.

Score choice allows you to pick your top scores from each section of all the SAT tests you took combined. Some colleges do not allow score choice, so make sure you do your research before sending scores.

There is no 'pass/fail' aspect of the SAT Subject Tests. You must decide what is acceptable for your personal ability. Minimum scores depend largely on the colleges to which you are applying.

Add the scores from the individual tests.

SAT score requirements vary drastically, and while some top-notch colleges require high scores, there are many schools that hardly pay any attention to the scores.

Bauder, Macon, Georgia Gwinnett, etc. Many community colleges don't require SAT or ACT scores for admission. You would need to check with the admissions office of the college you are most interested in attending to see if they require SAT scores for admission.

No, only if you choose to send them all.

A few universities like SRM , Amity , NIIT etc. consider your SAT scores. But by no means do they accept SAT scores as an admission criterion. But SAT scores are a very vital part of foreign university applications.

The state of Georgia has a college that will accept no SAT scores and a low high school GPA (Georgia Perimeter).

Colleges look at three things that all add up to 100%. Your GPA is 50% of it, sat/act scores are 25%, and your application and essays and extra curricular activities are the other 25% so no sat scores are not more important. Hope this helps!

SAT II's are also known as SAT Subject Tests. These tests are standardized (just like the SAT Reasoning Test), but they only focus on one subject (for instance, physics). Many colleges require students to take SAT II tests.

For most universities you need a SAT of 1400 or more to be accepted.

No, colleges can make you retake the SAT but not the ACT.

You need to take either the new SAT I + 2 SAT II Subject Tests, or the ACT with writing. If you're asking about minimum scores, they don't exist. Most kids who get in have scores in the 700s in each section, but there are plenty who have lower scores who are still accepted.

You need at least a GPA of 3.8 and SAT of 1950... and that's pushing it

You must have a high school diploma or a GED before you can even apply to a college. You will also have to have certain scores on the ACT or SAT tests. Some colleges will allow you to take the COMPASS test if you never took the ACT or SAT.
