PSAT Score Range

PSAT Score Range

Looking for information about the PSAT score range?  We’ve got it!

The PSAT is made up of two main sections: Evidence-Based Reading & Writing and Math.  Students receive a scaled score ranging from 160 to 760 for each of the sections, with 160 being the lowest possible score and 760 being the highest possible score.  The two scaled scores are added together to get the student’s total PSAT score, with a total score range from 320 to 1520. 

Additionally, the PSAT now offers individual test scores by subject (math, writing & language, reading), cross-test scores (analysis in history/social studies and analysis in science), and subscores that offer additional insight into specific skills by subject area. Both test and cross-test scores range from 8-38, while subscores range from 1-15. For a more detailed guide to score reports, what the ranges mean, and how this can help your child, review this PDF for more information.
