I got a 1520 on the new SAT (760 verbal, 760 math) but a 7, 6, 6 on the essay portion. I saw percentiles for the scores but couldn't find any for the essay portion of the test. What is a good SAT essay score (and if possible, what are the statistics on the distribution of essay scores on the New SAT)?
Instant scoring is available for the essays in our first two SAT practice tests. After finishing the required exam sections, you can write the optional essay and submit it to an official auto-scoring service approved by the College Board. The score you get back will give you a sense of how you might score on a real test.
