Yes, a score of 1200 is quite good. It places you in the top 76th percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million test takers of the SAT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a well above above average job answering the questions on the Math and Evidence-Based Reading & Writing sections of the test. If a 1200 isn't strong enough to get into your dream school, consider taking a test prep course to see if you can raise your score.

What is the ACT equivalent to a 1200 SAT score?

For comparison purposes, a 1200 on the SAT converts to a 25 on the ACT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.

Important: If you took the SAT prior to March 2016, your test was scored on the old 2400 point scale. All SAT scores on this site have been updated to reflect the 1600 SAT scale range per the College Board's concordance tables.
