The ACT has a set formula for converting their composite scores into SAT composite scores — but frankly it’s a little long and tedious. Here, we’ve consolidated all of the score conversions into one handy reference table (in both image and text form) that contains not only the corresponding SAT 2400 scores for each ACT score, but also the SAT 1600 score and each score’s percentile from the 2015-16 ACT season.

Jeanette Si

Jeanette is a junior at Cornell University double majoring in Information Science and China and Asia-Pacific Studies. As someone who’s received a lot of help from mentors during her personal admissions process, she’s looking to give back now that her own admissions season is behind her. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found singing show tunes (terribly), playing MOBAs (passably), or quoting Jane Austen (expertly).
