Scores for the June 1st SAT Now Available!

By June 20, 2013

Follow me on:

Scores from the June 1st SAT are now available on the CollegeBoard website. If your scores aren't as high as you had hoped, don't panic -- you have plenty of options with low SAT scores.

Also, keep in mind that all highly selective colleges have holistic admissions -- they evaluate the whole applicant, not just some numerical data. A winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, demonstrated interest and good letters of recommendation can help make up for less-than-ideal test scores. Most important of all is a strong academic record with challenging courses.

That said, if your SAT scores are significantly below the norm for a selective college, your chances of getting accepted will be diminished. These SAT articles and comparison charts can help you figure out how you measure up to matriculated students at different colleges and universities:

(1) SAT parent says:

On the website, it does say that scores are “now available.” However, my son’s scores are not posted. When I called the College Board, the representative said that some will be posted today, but others not until Thursday, or next Tuesday, or even later. This seems incredibly unfair, and very frustrating.

I think your son needs to learn patience. I don’t know how many kids take the SAT on any given Saturday, maybe 100,000 or so in the US alone? It does take a while to scan all those answer sheets, get the scores up on the internet, get the score reports out to the students, etc., and they all can’t be done at once.

This is the same for my collebe board account. I was assuming that i would recieve my scores exactly at 12:00 am, so college board should be clearer with these types of things.

Patience is a virtue. If about 2 million kids take the SAT each year, and there are only 5-6 test dates, what does that tell you? Each answer sheet has to be scanned, the information verified and posted to the website, emails send to the students and/or counselors, score reports emailed or mailed to the colleges, etc. So it does take a while to do this for the hundreds of thousands of kids who took the SAT on any given test date.
