What’s a good SAT score?

A good score will depend on the specific college or university. Usually, a score above 1200 (out of 1600) is considered competitive, and a score above 1400 is considered excellent. Keep in mind that highly selective schools may require scores in the 1500s or higher. Research the average SAT scores of admitted students at the schools you’re interested in to set your goals for the test.
