Verifying Your Scores

beginning of content:

The College Board has very careful and systematic quality control processes to ensure accuracy of your test score. If you would like to double-check your scores, you have access to score verification services.

Answer Services

An answer verification service is available for every SAT administration. Depending on when and where you take the SAT, you will receive either the Question-and-Answer Service (QAS) or the Student Answer Service (SAS) when you order Answer Services.

Both services can provide valuable insights to help you practice and prepare if you plan to retake the SAT.

You can order answer verification services when you register for the SAT or after your test date. These services will be available online with your score report.

If you're eligible for an SAT fee waiver, you can get the QAS or SAS for free. Learn about fee waivers.

The Question-and-Answer Service includes:

  • A copy of the SAT questions and a report showing your answers from the specific test administration
  • The correct answers and additional scoring instructions
  • Information about the type and difficulty of test questions

Note: The questions listed in your QAS report may not be in the same order you saw them on test day.

The Student Answer Service includes:

  • A report showing how you answered questions from the specific test administration
  • Information about the type and difficulty of test questions

Actual test questions and answers are not included.

The Question-and-Answer Service is not available for makeup test administrations or alternate date testing.

How to Order

You can order Answer Services during test registration or after your test date. If you don't order with your registration, you can still order in two ways:

  1. Order online by signing into your College Board account and selecting Order Now within My Score Reports.
  2. Call Customer Service at 866-756-7346 (U.S. and Canada) and 212-713-7789 (International).

Note: The Student Answer Verification fee is not refundable once the service has been fulfilled. You can request a refund if you're absent on test day.

Hand Score Verification

If your score is very different from what you expected, you may have made an obvious mistake in marking your answers, in which case we will attempt to rescore your test through hand score verification. The hand score verification process is performed only once per test.

You can request this process by filling out and returning the Request for SAT Score Verification Form.
