Online Score Report Help
Your score report shows you how well you did on your assessment. It also provides you with personalized feedback on how to improve your skills so that you’ll be ready for college and career.
Score Report Details
Your score report includes detailed information on a variety of scores that will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses.
See how you did on each section by looking at your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score and your Math score.
On your dashboard, click the arrow on the right of any score report to go to the Score Overview page and learn more about section scores. College and Career Readiness Benchmarks show whether you’re on track to be ready for college and a career.
PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 score reports include projected score ranges for each section score. They are calculated for the assessment typically taken by students a grade ahead of you. They’re based on a research study of average growth and score gain for students in your grade. You can outperform these projections by taking challenging courses and continuing to work hard.
Areas of Strength and Weakness
Go to the Score Details page for your test scores, cross-test scores, and subscores. These scores give you detailed analyses of your performance in specific areas. Areas where your skills are strong appear in green. The red and yellow zones are important to focus on because they show where you most need to improve your skills.

If you see "SAA" (state-allowed accommodation) on your score report, you’ve taken the assessment with a testing accommodation allowed by your state but not approved by the College Board.
- If you took the SAT with these accommodations, you can’t send those scores to colleges or scholarship programs.
- If you took the PSAT/NMSQT with these accommodations, you're not eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Check with your school for details.
