One of the most confusing aspects of these assessments is figuring out how they are scored and, for parents with students who have high GPAs, understanding why their child may have a mid- to low-range ACT score. Our objective today is to understand how the scoring works and to shed some light on why student’s score as they do The SAT total possible points range from 400 to 1600.
